“Rugged mountain region of unsurpassed Alpine character—250 glacier-fed lakes of romantic beauty—60 small glaciers—Precipices thousands of feet deep—Almost sensational scenery of marked individuality—Fine trout fishing.”

Glacier National Park.

Northern Montana.

Established in 1910.

Touring buses made by the White Motor Company transported visitors to the Many Glacier Hotel.

Built by the Great Northern Railway, the Many Glacier Hotel opened in 1915. It still operates in the summer.

    “The final road project, and perhaps the most important, is the construction of the first unit of the transcontinental automobile road, which is to connect the east and west sides of the park.”  National Park Service report, 1920

[The Going-to-the-Sun Road did not open until 1933]

The White Motor Car Company’s 17 passenger touring buses have been refurbished by the Ford Motor Company and again provide tours on the Going-to-the-Sun Road.
