CH1914 Pontiac is the county seat of Oakland County Michigan, first settled in 1818 where the Saginaw Indian Trail crossed the Clinton River, Pontiac was a natural spot to put a new town. The village was officially recognized by the state legislature in 1837 and incorporated as a city in 1861. It was named after the Ottawa Chief Pontiac.

Pontiac is considered a satellite city of Detroit, surrounded by affluent Metro Detroit suburbs. Although in the midst of these suburbs, Pontiac itself is an urban center with a significant manufacturing sector. This city is best-known for its General Motors manufacturing plants and the GM automobile brand, Pontiac, which was first produced in and named after the city. Also of note is the Pontiac Silverdome.
