Stories describe Michigan's first governor, Lewis Cass, signing a treaty with the Chippewa in 1918 and resting nearby with companions under a swamp oak a few miles north of Detroit. 
Cass told the story of Prince Charles II, who took refuge in 1651 under a mighty oak tree after the Battle of Worcester and lived to be crowned king.
Cass later designated the locality, including the southernmost townships in Oakland County, as Royal Oak.
This sector became a village in 1891 and a city in 1921.
Strong roots have helped the "City of Trees" maintain its viability through the years.
Home to William Beaumont Hospital, assorted high-tech graphic and sound studios, and a world-class zoo, today Royal Oak draws people into its pedestrian-friendly downtown for an eclectic mix of bars, sidewalk cafés, boutiques, theaters, and upscale lofts.

  •     Everything you want to know about Royal Oak. The photos that go along with the story are fun to look at and see how the city has developed through the years. The way the book is written keeps you interested and not asleep. The book is written in more of a story than a history book. I enjoyed reading this book. I would suggest this book to all ages. This book would be a great resource for any report needed for a school project.
