in the Ford Homes Historic Neighborhood

This distinctive neighborhood was born in 1919 and 1920.
In those years, Henry Ford built 156 homes for sale to his Dearborn Fordson Tractor Plant employees. The two-story, three- and four-bedroom homes were built with the most current materials and designs, and they cost between $8,750-$9,550. Henry, Clara and Edsel Ford financed the houses through Dearborn Realty and Construction Company. The homes, along Park, Nona, Beech, Military, Francis, Edison, Gregory and Olmstead streets, were within walking distance of the tractor plant.

"We are seeking to serve only those people who want a good home, who expect to pay for one, and who will appreciate one after they get one."
E. G. Liebold, President
Dearborn Realty and Construction Company
1919

You Auto Know
Henry Ford employed standardized building methods such as mass purchasing of materials and specialized crews, much as he had at the Rouge Plant, to build homes for his employees, selling them at cost.
