About Pontiac, MI
Pontiac, having been founded in 1818, is the second European-American organized settlement in Michigan within close proximity to Detroit. It was named after Pontiac, a war chief of the Ottawa people. The city was best known for its General Motors automobile manufacturing plants of the 20th century, which were the basis of its economy and contributed to the wealth of the region. Companies such as Fisher Body, Pontiac East Assembly, which manufactured GMC products, and the Pontiac Motor Division were of note. In the city’s golden age, it was the site of the central automobile assembly plant for the production of the famed Pontiac cars.
In 1975, the city built the Pontiac Silverdome, the stadium that hosted the Detroit Lions of the National Football League, until the team returned to Downtown Detroit at Ford Field. After 2001, the stadium continued to be used for concerts and other events until it was demolished in 2017.
Pontiac is defined by the city of Auburn Hills to the east and north, the city of Lake Angelus to the north, Waterford Township to the west, and Bloomfield Township to the south.
