Historic Rock Hill & the White Home

Historic Rock Hill is a membership-based 501(C)(3) historic preservation organization that owns and operates the historic White Home. Because the organization does not receive any public funding, HRH depends solely on the donations of individuals and businesses in the private sector.  Due to the ongoing support from our donors, we are able to teach others about the value and importance of historic preservation and to keep the history of Rock Hill alive through teaching programs, hosting special events, and maintaining the White Home – a cornerstone in downtown Rock Hill - as a premier educational and event rental venue.

Our Mission:

Preserve and protect the historic resources of Rock Hill, SC and enhance the livability of its historic areas through offering educational programs, hosting special events and community activities, and by leading preservation initiatives

Our Vision:

To create a thriving venue for social engagement while preserving Rock Hill’s rich heritage

Business Model:

Historic Rock Hill’s success depends on the efficient management of:

  • Business Operations

  • Recruiting/Expanding Funding Sources (non-membership)

  • Membership Retention & Recruitment

  • Major Events & Fundraising Efforts

  • The White Home (as an educational and rental venue)
