Associated Press: Michigan officials hope to redevelop Henry Ford mills
Associated Press: "Ford created the Village Industrial Mills in the 1920s and '30s. They acted as small factories that used hydroelectric power for manufacturing, mainly producing auto parts, until the county took them over after World War II.
Evans' team foresees potential buyers preserving and restoring the mills while integrating them into the parks system. Having potential developers interested in fitting into the larger concept for the area is important, said Khalil Rahal, the county's director of economic development."
