Preserving the automotive history of Detroit, the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant showcases the vehicles and automotive pioneers of the past. The Ford Piquette Avenue Plant was the first factory owned and built by the Ford Motor Company in 1904. Henry Ford's beloved Model T was innovative yet inexpensive. The Model T was designed at the Piquette Avenue Plant and the first 12,000 Model T's were built here. It was the first automobile factory were more than 100 cars were produced in a single day. This facility represents Henry Ford's rise to a preeminent position in the automotive industry as the Ford Motor Company became the leading producer of automobiles by 1906.

The perfect venue for a couple looking for something unique! Our guests enjoyed every minute of the reception and having access to the entire museum. The planning process was simple with Jeff’s help especially since planning across the country. I don’t have one bad thing to say about it!!Sent on 02/09/2019

Working with the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant for our November 12th wedding was a pleasure. It started out a little rough because when we first signed up (July 2015) because they did not have their event-planning department quite up and running. However, once they hired Bob all was well! Bob made sure that our wedding was the day of our dreams. He was prompt to respond to our endless contacts, worked with all of our vendors, allowed flexibility in our rehearsal and made sure that we knew about, and appreciated the uniqueness of the venue. He is truly a gem and the Ford Piquette Plant is lucky to have someone so knowledgeable and personable. You do have to choose from their list of preferred vendors for catering, party rentals, and heating/cooling. This is entirely understandable though, as the venue has to be particular since they are a National Historic Site. Their list of vendors is full of well-respected, high-quality options. The day of our wedding Bob was there, along with many members of the friendly staff, to make sure our day was perfect. We received so many compliments on how beautiful and unique the venue was, and our pictures turned out to be stunning! If you are able to snag a date at this beautiful, historic venue, I highly recommend doing so!Sent on 12/17/2016

This venue is amazing. It was a magical place to have our wedding and for the most part, the staff were very easy to work with and accommodating. Just a note, the venue is not air conditioned and it gets quite warm. Our wedding day was basically perfect weather: sunny and a high of 72 degrees, but we rented air conditioning and we needed it! I highly recommend renting air conditioning from Spot Cooling if you choose this venue.Sent on 06/19/2015
