Having a party, with the Pontiac Company
There’s probably a lot to say about the Pontiac Company, formed in 1818 by Colonel Stephen Mack and a cabal of influential Detroiters. The land grab platted the city of Pontiac, established the seat of Oakland County, probably made a lot of dudes a lot of money and set a precedent for northward expansion from Detroit.
