Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

According to this site, some interesting things have happened in Detroit in the month of May.

  • May 5, 1701 marked the first time Europeans married in Detroit. (Well, I married a European.)
  • The first Little Caesars opened on May 8, 1959 in Garden City. (I love pizza!)
  • King Louis XIV gave permission to lease farms in the Detroit area on May 14, 1728. (Urban farms could help build the new Detroit.)

That is all.
