Silver Buses Migrant Farm (1970s) – Page

In the 1970’s, one migrant farm used Silver Buses to house their temporary migrant workers that were here to harvest the apple crop.

According to Bill Huff, Jr., prior to the silver buses (circa 1950s), the owner of the farm used WW 2 surplus airplane gliders (minus their wings) to house migrant workers!
