2014 Summer Program

One hundred years ago, Henry Ford reorganized the way things were made. He perfected methods that Eli Whitney had dreamed of 100 years before him. Ford’s assembly line would make his motor cars so efficiently that they changed the world. Most dramatic: his workers made cars they could afford.

Work short shifts on our assembly line. Understand the power of tools and teamwork. The class will produce enough Model T cars and trucks that you will have your own and extras to sell or give away. Construct a portion of a 1914 neighborhood before the automobile had begun to retire horse drawn wagons and trolleys and reshape cities and lives.
