MICHIGAN

Michigan is a midwestern U.S. state bordering 4 of the Great Lakes. It contains more than 11,000 inland lakes, spread across its lower and upper peninsulas. Its largest city, Detroit, is famed as the seat of the U.S. auto industry, which inspired Diego Rivera’s murals at the Detroit Institute of Arts. Also in Detroit is Hitsville U.S.A., original headquarters of the Motown record company.

AUTOMOTIVE HISTORY

Beginning in the early 1900s, Michigan has been a hub of activity for the Automotive Industry. Both Ford and Buick were founded in Michigan in 1903. Perhaps the most notable advancement for the Automotive industry occurred in 1913 at Ford’s Highland Park factory, the moving assembly line. This process greatly increased the rate at which vehicles could be produced, evidenced by the fact that by 1918 half of all American cars were a Ford Model T.
