Ford Buys Historic Detroit Train Station

Crain’s Business is reporting that Matthew Moroun says the Moroun family has sold the historic Michigan Central Station in Detroit to Ford Motor Co.

The station has been unused since the last train pulled out in 1988. The Moroun Family bought the building in 1995 and had done some tedevelopment work. Moroun says the Blue Oval will adorn the building. The purchase signals Ford’s return to Detroit, where the company was founded in 1903. It also signals redevelopment of Corktown.

The sale also allows the Moroun family’s to pursue plans to replace the 88 year old Ambassador Bridge.

Historic Church Will Be Rebuilt

“Our intent is to rebuild” say officials of Trinity Lutheran Church in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The church suffered $17 million in damage from a spectacular fire last month.

Structural engineers have determined that the original 1878 walls are strong enough, with some bracing, to support reconstruction of the Church.
