Once the largest private landowner in the U.P., Ford wanted to control all aspects and resources involved in automobile manufacturing. His passion drove him to buy extensive timber lands and to operate mines and lumber mills from Kingsford to Big Bay. View artifacts and photographs gathered from museums and private collections from around the state for a rare look at Ford’s impact north of the bridge.
