Page history last edited by Sue 12 years, 2 months ago

"At one time or another, the city was the site of four different companies.  A few Waterloo cars were built in 1905 by the Waterloo Gas Engine Company which later made the Waterloo Boy tractor before becoming John Deere Tractor Works.  In 1904 and 1905 the Duryea car was produced there.  The Dart Truck Co. began operation in Waterloo around 1910 and existed about 10 years.  Bill Galloway persuaded Maytag's to move the Mason Auto Co. from Des Moines to Waterloo.  Maytag cars were built here in 1910-11.  in Iowan Dec. 1960-Jan. 1961.
