The Henry Ford, Dearborn, Michigan
On our way from Frankenmuth to Holland we stopped for the day in Dearborn to visit The Henry Ford. We took a tour of the Ford Rouge Plant where we watched Ford F-150 pickups being manufactured on the very impressive assembly line. The second component of The Henry Ford is Greenfield Village. It's like a museum of historic buildings. Buildings from around the country and world were moved there. We also took the opportunity to take a ride in a Model T Ford. Our final stop in Dearborn was the Henry Ford Museum. I expected this to just be about cars, but the artifacts on display are very impressive. It reminded me of the Smithsonian Museum of American History. The number of historically and culturally significant artifacts that Ford owns is astounding.
