Ford Field

Henry Ford gave "The Flats" to Dearborn, the city that framed his life. He was home in 1863 in the Scotch Settlement area, near present-day Ford and Greenfield roads, and died in 1947 at his estate at Fair Lane along the Rouge River. After his success in the automobile industry, he purchased large tracts of land here. Ford Field, originally called "The Flats," was one of theseā€”a popular recreation area along the Rouge River.
