Fordlândia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
"Fordlândia ('Ford-land') was a vast tract of land purchased by American automobile tycoon Henry Ford in the 1920s. Covering over 10,000 km² of land, it was situated near the city of Santarém, Brazil, and approximately 960 kilometres from the mouth of the Amazon River at Belém."

There's a Ford City in Windsor, Ontario.
