Located at 309 River road in Edgewater, New Jersey, the Ford Edgewater Assembly Plant was constructed between 1929 and 1931.

The Ford Assembly Plant at Edgewater was considered the most advanced and efficient automobile assembly plant for its time. Built as a replacement for the then out-moded, four-story assembly plant in Kearny, New Jersey, the Edgewater facility was one of the first fully-developed, two-story automobile assembly plants in the United States. Henry Ford took full advantage of the rail line, the deep water frontage, the free lighterage limit zone and proximity to a great labor and consumer market to experiment with the most modern equipment available to efficiently produce a low priced automobile.
