Statistics and Facts of Lincoln Park Michigan

History
Long before Lincoln Park was incorporated as a city, an area adjacent to Ecorse River was the site of a pivotal meeting during Pontiac's Rebellion. On April 27 1763, a council of several American Indian tribes from the Detroit region listened to a speech from the Ottawa leader Pontiac. Pontiac urged the listeners to join him in a surprise attack on Fort Detroit, which they attempted on May 9. Today, the area is known as Council Point Park, and a small engraved boulder marks the site of the historic meeting.

The auto magnate Preston Tucker joined the Lincoln Park Police Department in his early years to gain access to the high performance cars the department used.
