With 688 thousand people, Detroit is the most populated city in Michigan. Well known as the automotive center of the world, Detroit is often referred to as "Motor City". This status was earned in the early 20th century when Henry Ford founded the Ford Motor Company there. This along with other automotive pioneers William Durant, the Dodge brothers, Packard and Walter Chrysler, quickly made the city the top automotive manufacturer on Earth.But the city has 200 years of history that came before that, starting in 1701 when the French officer Antoine de La Mothe Cadillac and 51 French and French-Canadians founded the Fort Pontchartrain de Detroit settlement. They offered free land to colonists which helped attract families to the area. By 1765 it had a population of 800, which at the time made it the largest city between Montreal and New Orleans. Not even 10 years later the population grew to 1,400 and in another 5 years had reached 2,144. After the American Revolutionary War, Britain gave up the land that Detroit was on with other territories to the US in the Jay Treaty, establishing a northern border with Canada. Today the city is home to several major corporations, including three Fortune 500 companies. The industries that have the largest economical impact on Detroit are manufacturing (primarily automotive), finance, technology and health care. Downtown Detroit employs over 80 thousand people, or 20 percent of the city's employed.
