The early part of the 20th century saw an American phenomenon in housing choices made possible by a confluence of events. The automobile assembly line process in manufacturing, for example, was extended to home-building. Never before in history was there such a choice in housing for the average person. From planned communities to mail-order houses, families could find a way to achieve the American dream. Ron Campbell of Oakland County Economic Development and Community Affairs will tell the fascinating story about the creation of these houses and their ongoing legacy.
