Visiting the Piquette Avenue Ford Plant is a unique experience- the oldest auto plant open to the public anywhere in the world, birth place of the Model T. The plant is a 3-story New England-style mill building. Each floor is divided into sections by the original metal fire doors, complete with the shadows of Henry Ford's "Positively NO Smoking" stencils. The old plank floors are worn from the 12,000 Model Ts built on them, so wear appropriate shoes for your visit. Dress warm, as the plant is not heated. Walk the worn wood floors and touch the brick walls where Henry Ford and his team of automotive pioneers developed the car that led to an automotive and social revolution. See Henry Ford's office as it was in 1908 when he was on the cusp of fame, and learn why it still matters today. See a selection of rare Detroit-built cars from the first decade of the 20th century and learn their fates. The plant is on the National Register of Historic Places, and is a designated National Historic Landmark and a Michigan State Historic Site.
