Highlights of the first Elderwise all-day tour

The day started in the parking lot of Cleary University. It was all made so easy for us! Once underway, we visited several Henry Ford historic sites in Detroit and Dearborn. One of them, and my personal favorite, was the Ford Piquette Plant, located in the once bustling commercial district of Milwaukee Junction. Steve Stanford, our tour guide (who is a member of Elderwise and the Henry Ford Historic Society), gave us lots of really interesting information about the birthplace of the Model T.

Here we all are, enjoying the vintage cars at Ford Piquette Plant.

We also had a great lunch at Maccabees, Midtown. We were told this restaurant is a neo-gothic high-rise, designed by Henry Ford’s favorite architect, Albert Kahn. We all had plenty to talk about over lunch, and Steve was such an interesting guide. He knows so much about the history and life of Henry Ford!
Steve Stanford is a member of the Henry Ford Heritage Association and the Society of Automotive Historians.
I look forward to the next Elderwise Tour.
