White City began in 1941 when the U.S. Army constructed Camp White on 43,000 acres outside of Medford, Oregon as an army training camp for the 91st Infantry Division. Over four years, 40,000 troops shipped out of Camp White. During the war years, the surrounding plains sprouted temporary housing for many camp support services.

After the war, Camp White was declared surplus and many buildings were sold at public auction. After the auctions, little remained of Camp White except a military hospital and barracks, deeded to the Veterans Administration and reopened as a free-standing Domiciliary. The existing Camp White roads and facilities became the start of the community. White City residents continue today to volunteer their time and money to improve their community. We welcome you to be involved and become a partner in the community volunteer and become a resource for your community.
