This business is my favorite place because my grandfather, Ben Watson White, built it in the thirties.
I caught the bus from here to St. Louis to go into the Air Force in 1965. I started driving for Greyhound in 1970. I went through Blytheville several times. You should try getting around the station in a 40 ft bus. I have a lot of Greyhound memorabilia, including owners manuals from 1955 thru 1986, that I will be donating or loaning the museum for their anniversary when I am able to get in contact with the right person. Also I hope to be there to answer questions if the museum would like. As for me, I think the best bus GH ever made was the old bus that some called the double deckers. They were built in 1953-54-55, the same years the B-52 bombers that used to fly out of Blytheville AFBwere made.
In 1970 when we would start loading in El Paso, Tx, where I started with GH, ,we would have a brand new bus and the old one side by side and people would almost fight to get on the old bus because they thought it was the new one. Of course it had been recently refurbished and was nice.
