Grosse Pointe has a varied and vibrant history. The Native Americans who first tamed the wilderness, the French and British settlers amazed at the area's natural resources and the wealthy auto barons who built their magnificent estates along the beautiful lakeshore all helped create our history.

The Society was founded 60 years ago to celebrate this rich heritage and preserve it for generations to come. We believe that history is an invaluable part of our lives, connecting us to our past and providing us with insight about who we are today.

The Society sponsors programs that bring history to life. We also manage facilities that preserve and protect important artifacts from the past.
