It is hard to think of Detroit without considering its history in the motor industry. The Ford Piquette Avenue Plant has been preserved to serve as an education center and museum. It is the birthplace of the Ford Model T, which was the catalyst for America’s love relationship with cars. You don’t need to have a love for cars to enjoy the museum, only a desire to see a slice of Detroit’s history. Little has changed in this establishment since Henry Ford himself stood within its walls. The gleaming cars are no less than precious antiques.
