The FCA US LLC Headquarters and Technology Center is the North American headquarters and main research and development facility for the automobile manufacturer FCA US LLC (commonly known as Chrysler). Completed in 1996, the complex has 5,300,000 square feet (490,000 m ) on 504 acres (2.04 km) located near Interstate 75.In 1908, automobile pioneer John Dodge bought a farmhouse 3 miles (4.8 km) northeast of Auburn Heights to use as his country retreat. His oldest child, Winifred Dodge, married real estate baron Wesson Seyburn, who built his own country retreat 2.5 miles (4.0 km) north of Auburn Heights. The estate included hunting land, dog kennels, a swimming pool, horse stables and a 5,000-square-foot (460 m 2 ) Colonial Revival house. Pontiac Township purchased the estate in 1976 and adapted the buildings for government use. Today, it is known as the Auburn Hills Civic Center. Auburn Hills began as Pontiac Township, including the village of Auburn, in 1821, at what is today the corner of Auburn and Squirrel Roads. Situated on the Clinton River, it was named by Aaron Webster, the first settler, from Auburn, New York. His sawmill and grist mill attracted settlers to Auburn. After the streets were laid out in 1826, Auburn rivaled nearby Pontiac until the 1860s, when it lost its own prosperity. The town was renamed Amy in 1880 and it officially became Auburn Heights in 1919, later being renamed Auburn Hills in the 1970s.
