established in 1838
In 2005, after five generations of the White Family cared for this treasure, Historic Rock Hill purchased the White Home and began a five-year restoration journey. The White Home opened to the public on October 24, 2010, and, today, houses a collection of historical photographs and documents that reveal the growth and development of Rock Hill over the past 175 years. The present-day site spans more than 3 acres and includes the main house and several out-buildings.
The White Home serves as a gathering place for visitors of all ages, marking the start and end points for Old Town Historic Walking Tours. Its acclaimed gift shop features a wide variety of products that incorporate South Carolina History, craftsmanship, tastes, and art. Locally made items and other unique gifts can be found.
