AAA Editor Notes
Ford Piquette Avenue Plant, is off I-94 exit 215C (Woodward Ave./SR 1/John R St.), just n. on Brush St., then just e. to 461 Piquette Ave. This 1904 building was the first factory built by Henry Ford for the Ford Motor Co. It broke world production rates in 1908 with eight different models. The factory was in operation until 1910 when the need for more space prompted construction of the Highland Park Plant on Woodward Avenue.

Historic vehicles from the early brass era as well as unique auto brands from Detroit are on display on the second floor. The third floor is home to Henry Ford's “Experimental Room,” where the Model T was invented.

Note: The plant does not have a heating or cooling system.
