Preserve Ford Highland Park
On October 7, 1913, Henry Ford launched the moving assembly line at the Ford Highland Park Plant, making it the birthplace of industrial mass production. The use of the assembly line reduced the time it took to build the Model T from 12.5 hours to 93 minutes, reducing the price of the automobile. In 1914 Ford increased workers wages from $2.34 a day to $5, launching the American Middle Class.
Ford Highland Park changed THE WORLD. The Woodward Avenue Action Association is working to protect and preserve the National Historic Landmark buildings remaining at the Plant site. We are purchasing two of the historic buildings: Administration Building and Executive Garage. Our vision is to renovate these buildings, restore them to their former glory and provide public access. This will be a location where residents and visitors will experience our rich automobile heritage. Help us open this site to the public by making your tax deductible charitable contribution today. Your help is needed and appreciated.
