Dairy Farm, D & Park Avenue NE, (D)

Traditionally, this was a dairy farm extending east from the State Hospital to what is now Lancaster Drive and south to Center Street. The descendents of Henry Washington White, a minister of the Church of God, believe the house was built or renovated by him in 1911. Three small houses along Park Avenue to the south were for the dairy workers. Plants grow well and trees grew to magnificent height. However, recent storms have caused several to topple. The house is as sturdy as ever.
