Otto Graff statue unveiled in Flint

Downtown Flintâ??s Automotive Pioneers Statue Plaza has a new addition.

A statue of Otto Graff was added to the plaza on Saturday morning.

Graff was Flintâ??s first automobile dealer, selling Fords. He also served as treasurer of Genesee County for a period.

â??The more I studied the history and the more we got into it, it choked me up actually at times, you get thinking about it, reading the history and talking to old employees, it's been a ball, it's just been so much fun, it's exciting,â?? says Hank Graff, grandson of Otto Graff.

The Graff family still owns a number of dealerships around the Genesee County area.
