Station: Cadillac, MI
Cadillac was settled in Wexford County about 1871. In 1872 it was called the village of Clark Lake but renamed Cadillac in 1877. The town became a village in 1875 and a city in 1877. [MPN]
Cadillac was home to at least three railroads, the Ann Arbor railroad which ran between Toledo and Frankfort, the Grand Rapids & Indiana (between Fort Wayne and Mackinaw City) and the Cadillac & Northeastern, a 3' narrow gauge logging railroad which ran 12 miles east to Lake City.
