Dot Anderson Has Passed

We are saddened to learn of the passing of Dorothea Elder "Dot" Anderson at age 96. Dot, along with her late husband Orville DeWayne Anderson operated Anderson Coach and Travel based in Greenville PA. Anderson Coach and Travel started out with one school bus in 1937 and today still operates school buses, but also operates motor coach tours and charters throughout the United States and Canada. All of us at the museum extend our deepest sympathies to the Anderson family.
