20# – Ford’s Manufacturing Marvel
In this free audio guide we explain how Henry Ford implemented the moving assembly line and the $5 Work Day here at the Highland Park Ford Plant, and how he kind of changed the world as a result. It is meant to be listened to on-location, not online!
11:55 minutes

Tour Starting Point – Once at the Highland Park Ford Plant, feel free to swing by the historic marker on Woodward Avenue, but this tour begins at the corner of Manchester St. and John R.  You should see a sign that says “Highland Industrial Center, Woodward Manchester Corp.” We recommend staying on the side of the street further away from the plant so that you can get a better look at it.

To listen on location with a Smart phone, grab your headphones and go to the tour starting point. Once there, pull up this webpage on your phone, and press the orange play button above. To listen on location without a Smart phone, go to the tour starting point and call (313) 483 – 4095 on a regular cell phone. Then enter 20# to access the free audio guide, “Ford’s Manufacturing Marvel.”
