Established: Authorized on November 6, 1998.
Location:Encompasses almost 10,000 square miles, portions of 13 counties, and nearly 260 municipalities and townships in central and southeastern Michigan.
Special Features:At the beginning of the 20th century, a small group of pioneer auto manufacturers assembled a few hundred "horseless carriages" in Michigan. By the time twenty years had passed, Michigan had more than 700 automotive-related companies on record, including 367 in Detroit alone. Southeast Michigan, which includes the "Motor Cities" of Detroit, Lansing and Flint, is the region that put the world on wheels. The heritage area consists of six significant corridors. This collection of auto-related museums, attractions, activities and events exists to preserve and interpret the story of the automobile.
