The White Home / Welcome

Built in 1839 in the historic East Town District, the White Home, located at 258 East White Street, was one of the first homes constructed in Rock Hill, South Carolina. Through exhibits and programs, the story of a family that was instrumental in the birth and development of Rock Hill - and has served South Carolina for generations - is told.


About The White Home

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.
