It All Started Here

Dearborn - It All Started Here shirt

It all started here.  The freedom of modern transportation started in Dearborn (hometown of Henry Ford) with Henry Ford’s model T automobile  and the Ford Airport – the world’s first modern airport (along with the first U.S. airport hotel, the first concrete runways, and first U.S. scheduled passenger service, etc.)

The Ford Airport closed a long time ago.

Network Dearborn is all about Dearborn history, Dearborn business, Dearborn news, Dearborn people, arts, etc.

Companies come and go, but cities keep going.  Thankfully – Ford Motor Company is still going strong.

“It’s hard to kill a city, but easy to kill a company” says Matt Mulenweg (pulling a quote from Geoffrey West) The average life of companies is 10 years. Cities routinely survive even nuclear bombs. And “cities are the crucible of civilization.” They are the major source of innovation and wealth creation. Currently they are growing exponentially.
