Ford Motor Company--Plant Construction--Dearborn Engineering Lab--1923-1924--Item89

Summary

Work began on the expansion of the old powerhouse located near the Ford Motor Company Engineering Laboratory in the late 1920s. The building's new equipment would send high pressure steam through underground tunnel extensions to Henry Ford's other Dearborn construction projects -- his museum and Ford Airport. The Albert Kahn-designed structure was completed in 1930.
