The former Independence Township Hall was once owned by Henry Ford and intended to be an apprentice school for Ford’s Clarkston Village site. He later converted it into a factory to build cushions and straps for civilian and military vehicles throughout World War II, then built the neighboring steam plant as a power source until the factory closed in 1947.
