Biography/History"Ford Assembly Plant, built in 1914-1915. John Graham from Seattle, Washington, was architect for Ford. This handsome building is faced with red brick and light cream glazed tiles, with a polished granite water table in Chicago School style. Assembly plants such as this one were designed by Ford to decentralize the manufacture of cars and trucks." - Fargo's Heritage, by Norene A. Roberts, p. 62.
