Fremont, California is the place Apple chose to build a state-of-the-art factory for building the original Macintosh. Designed to take advantage of both robotics and a highly skilled workforce, the factory was able to produce a Macintosh every 27 seconds.
The city of Fremont applied for historical landmark designation for the building but was turned down by the state, which requires buildings to be at least 50 years old to be considered for historical designation. The Macintosh factory in Fremont is only 30 years old.
The Fremont city council will settle for putting a plaque on the building, and perhaps revisit the idea of historical significance in 20 years, provided the building still exists.
Apple produced a number of marketing videos about the facility, including ones that show the assembly process. You can find them on YouTube, or you can start with this offering: Macintosh factory part 1.
