White House
Description: Caption reads "Ohio Tour #19-A, State 46, District #1. "White House" - North Bristol. Unusual example of the Greek Revival influence in Pioneer architecture. Laminated pilasters on front of this house are distinctly unique." This home, built around 1830, is located on State Route 45 in North Bristol, Ohio. In 1936, the building was photographed and documented by Carl Waite of the Historic American Buildings Survey, and photographs and floor plans can be found with the Library of Congress. This house is one of many Greek Revival style homes built in the area. In 1936, the house was occupied by a Mr. Williams and his family. On July 10, 1800, the government of the Northwest Territory authorized the creation of Trumbull County. It originally was a portion of the Connecticut Western Reserve. The county was named in honor of Connecticut Governor Jonathan Trumbull. Trumbull County is located in northeastern Ohio and covers 616 square miles. The county's eastern border helps form the boundary between Ohio and Pennsylvania. View on Ohio Memory.
