Speaking on the subject of Henry Ford, happened to be at one of his larger failures just the other day (this image is NOT mine!):http://www.waymarking.com/gallery/image.aspx?f=1&guid=b3aa9c30-a799-468f-ba3b-11282ef041fa&gid=3
"Ford's Folly", a monument to poor planning
The grist mill is great however, and still in operation. Even better is Nathan, the caretaker. Not only does he mill flour and stuff with the mill daily and sell baking mixes and the like, he MAINTAINS the mill by hand. Every part replaced is a hand-made part, most carved from wood. He's a fascinating guy to talk to- if you let him, he'll drag around to weird little spots and tell you how long it took to replace a hand-carved wooden gear three feet across. And show you how he made it. Truly defines the word Artisan.
