AT that time, FORD was the only automobile & truck manufacturing company who manufactured their entire product from beginning to end.  They did EVERYTHING, in house, which began with the raw materials.

The main building in the Rouge Plant today has a giant grass roof.

Randy, is that near the Ford Museum that is in Detroit? A friend picked up his Roush Mustang at the Roush facility last year and mentioned there was a museum nearby...

The Rouge complex is within the cities River Rouge and Dearborn a few miles east of the museum in Dearborn. Today, the business end of the steel plant is run by vested employees who became "A K Steel" and took it over when Ford Motor Company was on the verge of selling it to another private entity.

The Henry Ford museum offers a "Virtual Tour" of the facility 75 years ago and now from one of the theaters within that museum. They also offer a "Real Life" tour taking a buss ride from the museum to the newer truck plant still in operation at the Rouge; it replaced the Mustang factory.
They call that grass roof the "Living Roof".
