About The Event
About this venue
Preserving the automotive history of Detroit, the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant showcases the vehicles and automotive pioneers of the past. The Ford Piquette Avenue Plant was the first factory-owned and built by the Ford Motor Company in 1904. Henry Ford's beloved Model T was innovative yet inexpensive. The Model T was designed at the Piquette Avenue Plant and the first 12,000 Model T's were built here. It was the first automobile factory where more than 100 cars were produced in a single day. This facility represents Henry Ford's rise to a preeminent position in the automotive industry as the Ford Motor Company became the leading producer of automobiles by 1906. Today, the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant is a 501(c)3 non-profit and recognized as an international destination for automotive heritage enthusiasts. The Ford Piquette Avenue Plant was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 2002, listed as a Michigan State Historic Site in 2003 and declared a National Historic Landmark in 2006.
We will meet at the plant at XX AM. Following the tour, we will have lunch at a nearby restaurant to be named later.
Free parking is available in the paved lot in the Courtyard next to the plant building.
