There are four new pieces of history in DeKalb County, and they are here to stay! The “pieces of history” are actually large “FORD” letters and are located at the Ford V-8 Museum…what a perfect fit!
These letters used to be on the Ford Plant’s Smoke-Stack in Fairfax, Ohio. However, they were donated to the Ford V-8 Museum from Tim Yeoman of Cinnicinnati! Yeoman, employed by Green Sales, which is an auto parts business that specializes in Ford parts, had them picked up and delivered by George Elbel, Ron Stauffer, and Lynn Ewing to DeKalb County.
The process probably wasn’t too easy, considering how large the letters are! The F, O, R, and D stand 8 feet tall and are stainless-steel. The Ford V-8 Museum also disclosed that “they’re very heavy and curved to fit the round stack.”
The above picture shows the letters being installed, which is located on the east side of the Ford V-8 building, so they are visible from I-69. Head to the museum and check out the letters, they are an unusual piece of history!
