Are there any good model t sites to see in Louisville?
I heard there is a Ford plant that used to produce T's but are there tours etc
thanks in advance.
Louisville truck plant???
Ford has two production facilities in Louisville. The truck plant on Chamberlain lane and the car assembly plant on Fern Valley road. I am not sure about tours.
We are having a 4 day T tour in Corydon IN, about 25 miles south of Louisville, beginning May 31. Have 40 cars coming in. Come join us if you like. Contact 502 seven two seven 3887 for more info.
Louisville Slugger is there and I would eat at Moby Dick . It is a fast food deep fried seafood dive that is absolutely worth a visit
that is all I know as I am from New Jersey and have only been there for a one day concert called Hullabaloo .
The model T plant in Louisville was the Reynolds building on 3rd street. It is now apartments. check out the link.

The Reynolds Building at the corner of Eastern Parkway and 3rd Street is not appropriately named as the place was actually built by Ford in 1915 to manufacture Model T's. Detroit architect Albert Kahn designed it. Early auto plants were dirty, cramped, dark and inefficient; Kahnís design took into account what the workers did and where their materials should be placed to speed the workflow. The building is made of reinforced concrete in a method known as flat-slab construction, covered in bricks and has horizontal lines and an irregular shape. Brick work and terra cotta decorate its surface. It has been called a textbook example of early industrial architecture. In 1924, Ford moved its operations to Southwestern Parkway.
