History of Highland Park

Highland Park is a historically rich neighborhood in the City of Detroit. Henry Ford began development of the Ford Assembly Plant in 1907, and construction completed in 1909. The plant (located in the picture above) created a dramatic population increase to Highland Park in 1913 when the plant opened the very first assembly line. This increase was over 1000% by the 1920s, where the city’s highest population grew to about 46,000.
