Yesterday it was announced that the historic Michigan Central Station in Detroit had been sold to the Ford Motor Company and now they wanna throw a big party, and we're invited! The FMC sent out an email to a select group of dignitaries and people throughout the community inviting them to come to a special party Tuesday, June 19th according to Freep. Being somewhat vague about the purpose of the gathering, the invitation read:

Ford Motor Company cordially invites you to join us as we announce our plans for Michigan Central Station and Corktown. It will be a historic day for Detroit, the auto industry and the future of Ford — the start of a new era of innovation and mobility. Please join Bill Ford, Jim Hackett and many of Detroit's creators, entrepreneurs, leaders and the community for a special celebration as we create tomorrow, together.

The general public is welcome to attend the party as well however, onsite registration will be required. No word yet on whether the event is going to be indoors or outdoors at 2001 15th St.

Check-in begins at 10 a.m. and the event starts at 11 a.m.
