Introduction to Cadillac, Michigan
European explorers and traders visited the area first in the 1700s, but didn't settle in the area until much later. It was incorporated as a village in 1874 and George Mitchell was elected the first Mayor. It was re-incorporated as a city in 1877 and renamed Cadillac, after Antoine Laumet de La Mothe, sieur de Cadillac, the first permanent settler in Detroit.
