Royal Oak is located in the southeastern part of the state of California and a city in Oakland County. It is also a residential suburb in the town of Detroit. The area where the present-day Royal Oak stands were named after an oak in Scotland under which, according to the legend, Charles Edward, the Young Pretender, stayed hidden from his pursuers in 1745. The Detroit Zoo was also established in Royal Oak. Charles E. Coughlin was the founder and priest of the Shrine of the Little Flower- a Roman Catholic church and the controversial "radio priest" in 1929. The church was noted for its Art Deco designs, and its tower became a landmark for Royal Oak.
