Forgotten Detroit
Fisher Body 21

Although lacking in architectural magnificence, perhaps the ruin featured on this site that best symbolizes Detroit is the Fisher Body 21. No cars were manufactured here but the car bodies produced by Fisher became the industry standard. Fisher Body 21 was the birthplace for the bodies of countless Cadillacs.

Closed since the early-90's Fisher Body 21 has joined the list of forlorn symbols of industry. Recent proposals to convert the building in to a data farm have fizzled and thus Fisher faces an uncertain future.
