List of National Historic Landmarks in Michigan

List of National Historic Landmarks in Michigan
This is a complete List of National Historic Landmarks in Michigan, of which there are 34. The United States National Historic Landmark program is operated under the auspices of the National Park Service, and recognizes structures, districts, objects, and similar resources according to a list of criteria of national significance.[1] The state of Michigan is home to 34 of these landmarks. The table below lists all 34 of these sites, along with added detail and description. In addition, two sites in Michigan were designated National Historic Landmarks, and subsequently de-designated. One other landmark, a movable object, has been relocated to another state. These three sites appear in another table further below. [4] ^ National Park Service.

Wayne

Henry M. Leland acquired a factory here in 1917 and greatly expanded it in order to produce Liberty Engines as part of the World War I war effort. After the war, Leland used his long and prominent experience with Cadillac to inaugurate the Lincoln line of automobiles. Leland sold his company to Henry Ford in 1922; by 1952 this original Lincoln plant was retired from automotive production. Most of the complex was demolished in 2002/03, leading to withdrawal of its landmark designation. [8] In his third venture in the automotive industry, and after his departure from the highly successful Oldsmobile, Ransom E. Olds established the Reo Motor Car Company at this plant in 1904. Reo enjoyed early success and was responsible for many innovations in automobile manufacturing, but remained a niche company for most of its existence. The factory complex was demolished in 1980 to make way for site redevelopment, and landmark status was withdrawn in 1985. [8]
