Henry Ford’s 1904 automobile factory on Piquette Avenue in Detroit’s Milwaukee Junction was saved from the wrecking ball in 2000 by the Model T Automotive Heritage Complex. The non-profit museum has done a fine job preserving the National Landmark building and interpreting the revolutionary Model T that Ford began producing in the factory in 1908. Exhibits include several fine Model Ts and other Ford models as well as other manufacturers’ cars from the early era of automobiles. Knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guides bring the history alive in this unique site of American innovation history.
