FLINT, Mich. (AP) - A ceremony has been held to dedicate a historical marker at Applewood Estate in Flint, the family home of automotive pioneer Charles Stewart Mott.

The state marker was unveiled Thursday afternoon in celebration of the estate’s 100th anniversary.

The program was held on Applewood’s grand opening day, marking the launch of free, public tours for the first time inside the historic house.

The Ruth Mott Foundation owns and operates the estate. Foundation officials and members of the Michigan Historical Commission attended the ceremony.

Charles Stewart Mott was a founder of General Motors. Both he and his late wife were philanthropists.

Applewood was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.
