White City, an incorporated city of the third class in Morris county, is located in Rolling Prairie township on the Missouri, Kansas & Texas and the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific railroads 17 miles northwest of Council Grove, the county seat. It has 2 banks, a weekly newspaper (the Register), a number of retail establishments, telegraph and express offices, and an international money order postoffice with four rural routes. Grain produce and live stock are extensively shipped. The population in 1910 was 506. The town was founded in 1871 by a colony numbering about 40 families organized in Chicago. The first house was built by Thomas Eldridge and the first store by James Thornley and W. N. Dunbar. A good school house was erected in 1873 and Adam Dixon was the first teacher.
