More about the Ford Piquette Museum:
The Ford Piquette museum is located in Detroit, Michigan, in a building that is best known as the birthplace of the Ford Model T. This former factory, located in the oldest automotive factory building in the world, is open to the general public.
During 1907, Henry Ford and a small team of dedicated engineers and draftsmen developed the Model T at this location.
The Ford Model T was the first automobile produced by the Ford Motor Company from 1908 to 1927. It is regarded as the first affordable automobile because of Ford’s efficient manufacturing, including the first automobile assembly line production. The Ford Motor company eventually produced 15 million Model T Fords.
