The house where Henry Ford lived when he introduced the Model T and the first moving assembly line has gone on the market for the first time in nearly 40 years.
Designed by the Ford Motor Co. founder's wife, Clara, the 7,200-square-foot home in Detroit's Boston-Edison neighborhood has an asking price of $975,000. Owners Jerald and Marilyn Mitchell restored portions of the home that had been modified over the years and otherwise worked to preserve its history since buying it in 1985.
"I never considered it our house," Jerald Mitchell told Crain's Detroit Business, a sibling publication of Automotive News. "It was always Mr. Ford's house, and we were the stewards."
