About The Event

In the late 1600s the fur trade was the most lucrative business in Canada and controlled by France. A Frenchman, Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac, founded Detroit to maintain French control of the fur trade and for his own financial benefit.   Local Historian Joseph Oldenburg will be making a presentation on the founding of Detroit City on its 318th anniversary. Join us on Wednesday, July 24th at 7:00 pm in the New School Church at Mill Race Village.  

The lecture will be at the New School Church at Mill Race Historical Village, 215 Griswold St, Northville at 7:00pm. The lecture is free, although donations are accepted at the door to help defray costs.  Register at: si’l vous plait!
