Henry Ford transformed America by creating "a motor car for the great multitude." Always interested in tinkering with machinery than in working on his parents' Dearborn farm. Ford gravitated toward the young auto industry in the 1890's.The Model T, introduced in 1908, was reasonably priced, simple to operate and easy to maintain. Tremendous demand for the car led Ford to make production changes resulting in the moving assembly line. The $5-a-day wage he offered in 1914 was equally unprecedented.Ford created the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village to preserve our American experience and heritage.
