Since its inception 119 years ago, the Cadillac Motor Car Division, named after French explorer and founder of Detroit, Antoine Laumet de La Mothe, sieur de Cadillac, has focused on innovation and engineering excellence. Cadillac founder Henry M. Leland organized the assets from the failed Henry Ford Company (1901 – 1902) and used his engineering and meticulous machining skills learned at Colt firearms to create one of the finest motorcar companies in the industry. With a bold move to be a 100% Electric Car Division as early as 2030, Cadillac is again at the forefront of the automotive industry, paving the way towards a new “standard of the world”.
Join ACM Curator of Exhibitry, Scot Keller, for this exciting talk about the past and future of the Cadillac Motor Car Division.

There are many chapters to the story of the automobile. If cars could talk, they might just share stories we never imagined.

Join us on the second Tuesday of each month, and explore the story of cars with Museum curators, staff or local personalities.
