 : Henry Ford helped to create a new America with his Model T, moving assembly line, and $5 day. He then sought to counter these cultural changes though his social programs and initiatives. Local Henry Ford scholar Steven Stanford explains Ford's desire to retain elements of the past through his educational reforms, rural industries, museum, and even through square dance lessons! Steven will give us new insights into this tinkerer turned titan who grew to regret the impact he had on America. Register - Village.
