The area got its next major factory in 1913, when Henry Ford opened a plant to manufacture the Ford Model T. In 1916, the Grand Temple of the Black Knights of Pythias, was built. It was the first building for African Americans by African Americans. The building later became the Union Bankers Building.

Many of the bars and night clubs hosted nationally famous musicians, like The Replacements, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Flaming Lips, The Reverend Horton Heat.
