This was the first Eatonville stage owed by Chas (Charles) Fredricksen.
“In 1912 the auto stage replaced the horse drawn stage lines, although the Eatonville fire fighters continued to use a horse cart propelled by man-power for almost twenty more years.
Charles Fredricksen owned and operated the first motor bus line to Tacoma. The first bus was a white with canvas top and side curtains.” (History of Southeastern Pierce County)
