The White-Overton-Callander House, located in Portland, Connecticut, is significant because of the notable role the initial owner of the property played in Connecticut and American history (Criterion B). Captain Nathaniel White II (1685-1743), was among the 29 families who established the Third Society of Middletown- comprised of the present towns of Portland and East Hampton, Connecticut- and it was White who built the house in question, this between 1711 and 1714. White remained in the house until his death in 1743, whereupon it then passed down through several branches of the White family up until1907. Currently occupied by the Portland Historical Society, the White-Overton-Callander House represents a fine example of Colonial architecture which, despite being over 300 years old, retains a notable degree of its early historical character and details.
