In 1900, the White brothers (Rollin, Windsor, and Walter) began production of steam-powered cars, and in 1910 they had switched to producing gasoline-powered engines. Car production by the White Motor Company came to an end after World War I, so they could focus exclusively on commercial trucks and buses. The company soon sold 10 percent of all trucks made in the United States.
They built the White Mountain buses which were used in the Western United States national parks, smaller state parks and resort operators. The open-air seating arrangement and the high stature made them ideal choices for touring companies. Several were used in the Alaskan town of Skagway for tours, and refurbished White buses are now back in operation at Yellowstone National Park.By Daniel Vaughan | Jan 2020
