History of Royal OakSearch Royal Oak Michigan Homes For Sale

In 1821 Royal Oak was incorporated as a village, and in 1921 it became a city. The city earned its name due to Governor Lewis Cass’ surveying expeditions.  A large oak tree in the area reminded him of the Royal Oak in which King Charles II of England used as a hiding place to escape the capture of the Roundheads after the Battle of Worcester.

Father Charles Coughlin was the founder of the Shrine of the Little Flower in the 1920’s. Today the church is still a prominent landmark in the city. Father Coughlin raised the funds to build the church and the tower through his ministry where he aired his radio show.

As time moved on Royal Oak became a hip nightlife destination, and since the 1990’s and 2000’s many large condominiums and lofts have been added to the area.
