History

Village of Clam Lake

Although European explorers and traders visited the area since the 1700s, permanent white settlement did not begin until some time later. Initial settlements were connected with the logging industry.


In 1871, Cadillac's first sawmill began operation. Originally called the Pioneer Mill, it was built by John R. Yale. That same year, George A. Mitchell, a prominent Cadillac banker and railroad entrepreneur, and Adam Gallinger, a local carpenter, formed the Clam Lake Canal Improvement and Construction Company. Two years later, the Clam Lake Canal was constructed between Big and Little Clam lakes, present-day Lakes Mitchell and Cadillac. Sawmill owners used the canal to transport timber from Big Clam Lake to the mills and railroad sites--the G.R. & I. Railroad had reached the area in 1872--on Little Clam Lake, in Cadillac.


Cadillac was originally called Clam Lake and was incorporated as a village in 1874. George Mitchell was elected the first mayor. The village changed its name and was incorporated as the city of Cadillac three years later in 1877, named after Antoine Laumet de La Mothe, sieur de Cadillac, a Frenchman who made the first permanent settlement at Detroit in 1701. Statue of Cadillac commemorating his landing in Detroit Antoine Laumet, dit de La Mothe, sieur de Cadillac (March 5, 1658-October 15, 1730), a French explorer, was a colourful figure in the history of New France. ...

Battle of Manton

The Wexford County seat of government was established in nearby Manton, in 1881, as the result of a comprimise between the fueding residents of Cadillac and Sherman. Cadillac partisans, however, won the county seat in April 1882. After the election a sheriff's posse left the city for Manton by special train to seize the county records. When they arrived, however, an angry crowd confronted the Cadillac men and drove them out of town. After collecting several hundred lumbermen, a supply of whiskey and a brass band, the sheriff returned to demand the records. Manton residents barricaded the courthouse but the posse broke through the doors and windows, seized the documents and returned to Cadillac.

In 1878, Ephraim Shay perfected his Shay locomotive, which was particularly effective in its ability to climb steep grades, maneuver sharp turns and manage imperfections in railroad tracks. Cadillac was home to the Michigan Iron Works Company, which manufactured the Shay locomotive for a short time in the early 1880s. The lumber industry continued to dominate the city, drawing in a large immigrant labor force, most of whom were Swedish; two of Cadillac's sister cities are Mölnlycke, Sweden, and Rovaniemi, Finland. The Shay locomotive was the most popular and best-known type of geared steam locomotive. ... Mölnlycke is a suburb of Greater Gothenburg, and the seat of Härryda municipality in Sweden. ...

In 1899, the Cadillac Club formed, the forerunner of the Cadillac Area Chamber of Commerce. Gradually, various manufacturing firms found success in Cadillac. By the early 1900’s, lumber was depleted and the timber industry was in decline. Industrial development soon dominated the local economy. Today, Cadillac has achieved recognition throughout Michigan as a leader in the growth of industrial development. Industries include the manufacture of pleasure boats, automotive parts, water well components, vacuum cleaners and rubber products.


In 1936, the Forest Service and the Civilian Conservation Corps created the Caberfae Ski Area, which led to promotion of the area as a tourist center. The ski resort remains in operation today. Tourism has since become the second most important sector of Cadillac's economy. In the summer, tourists come to the city for boating, fishing, hiking, mountain biking and camping. In the fall hunting and color tours are popular. The winter is possibly the busiest season; the area can be found packed with downhill skiers, cross-country skiers, ice-fishers, snow-shoers and-most of all-snowmobilers. The North American Snowmobile Festival (NASF) is held on frozen Lake Cadillac every winter. Civilian Conservation Corps workers restoring the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal. ...


Thirsty's, a gas station on M-55 right outside of Cadillac's city limits, was the home of Samantha or "Sam The Bear" from the 1970s through the late 1990s when Sam died of old age. Sam was the only brown bear in captivity in the US at the time to hibernate naturally. Sam lived in a large cage in front of the gas station and was lovingly fed ice cream cones by tourists every summer. Binomial name Ursus arctos Linnaeus, 1758 Brown Bear range The Brown Bear (Ursus arctos) is a species of bear that can reach masses of 130–700 kg (300–1500 pounds). ...


In October 1975 the rock group KISS held a free concert at Cadillac's Veterans Memorial Stadium. They played the concert to honor the Cadillac High School football team. In previous years, the team had compiled a record of sixteen consecutive victories. But the 1974 squad opened the season with two losses. The assistant coach, Jeff Neff, an English teacher and rock'n'roll fan, thought to inspire the team by playing KISS music in the locker room. He also connected the team's game plan, K-I-S-S or "Keep It Simple Stupid", with the band. The team went on to win seven straight games and their conference co-championship. After learning of their association with the team's success, the band decided to visit the school and play for the homecoming game. [1].

Cadillac is situated in Clam Lake and Haring Townships at the junction of 3 major highways, US-131, M-115 and M55. The 1,150 acre Lake Cadillac is entirely within the city limits, and some claim it is the largest lake entirely in any city in the United States. The larger, 2,580 acre Lake Mitchell is nearby on the west side of the city, with 1,760 feet of shoreline within the city's municipal boundary. The lakes were connected by a stream which was replaced in 1873 by the Clam Lake Canal. Lake Cadillac was formerly known as Little Clam Lake, while Lake Mitchell was Big Clam Lake. Lake Mitchell was renamed for George A. Mitchell. The canal was featured on Ripley's Believe It or Not in the 1970s because in winter the canal freezes before the lakes and then after the lakes freeze, the canal thaws and remains unfrozen for the rest of the winter. Although it is illegal to attempt to use a snowmobile to cross the open water on the canal, some individuals occasionally try to do so. Ripleys Believe It or Not! deals in the bizarre—events and items so strange and unusual that it is often hard to believe that they actually exist--but they do: believe it. ...

Tourism

Cadillac is frequently considered by those who know it to be a tourist town. The center of the city is generally perceived to have a "small-town-feel;” in the summer the downtown fills with tourists, most of whom are from southern Michigan and are referred to by locals as "Down-staters." The city center is in fact only one block from Lake Cadillac and is as accessible by boat as it is by car. The city’s immediate proximity to two lakes, as well as Manistee National Forest, Pere-Marquette State Forest, Mitchell State Park and a number of major highways has ensured that tourism occupies a major sector of the local economy.

Lou Gehrig's Disease

Based on a single, limited study involving twenty people, some people have labelled Cadillac as one of three "hot spots" for Lou Gehrig's Disease in the US. However, the study made no attempt to ascertain the occurrence of the disease in other parts of the state, or elsewhere in the country. The study was designed to examine the possible occurrence of the disease due to genetic influences. [6] The occurrence of the disease within the city limits of Cadillac is reportedly over 100 times the normal rate. The cause of the abnormally large occurrence of the disease in Cadillac is as of yet unknown.
