Homes of Ford Executives Part 1


This is the home formerly owned by Charles Sorensen, Henry Ford's number 1 production man for many years and author of "My Forty Years with Ford". The property was annexed by the City of Detroit for a Rouge Park expansion in the 1940s and the house was used for various functions, lastly being used by the Detroit Police Mounted Unit. The home was torn down in 1984, but if you look closely, there are still remnants of the home along the Rouge River.

Sorensen also owned a home in Algonac, Michigan an apartment in the Detroit Towers building on Jefferson Ave. in Detroit.

Charles Sorensen enjoyed sailing & boating and this led him to build a home in Miami on North Bay Road. This home is still standing and you can rent it for the princely sum of $29,500 a month. Yes per month! If you look at the following link, it shows some interior & exterior photos.
