Named after a small stream, Willow Run would enter the global spotlight druing World War II as one of the most prolific examples of American ingenuity and hard work. The bombers built in the plant would reach the far corners of the world, and the men and women who made them took pride in their ability to produce them quickly and efficiently.

A community emerged on the grounds, and both the plant and the housing far outlasted the nation's need for bombers. The story of Willow Run is the story of the adaptability and courage of the American spirit.
