This amazing home has a history unlike any other. This 16 plus acre property was originally a much larger estate owned by the White family.William White, 4 oldest son of Alexander White8 and Mary (McMurtrie) White of Sussex County, New Jersey, was the first from that county to enlist in the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. Alexander White, Sr. is the 4th generation of Americans from the Mayflower. Alexander migrated west, upon arriving in New Jersey from his birthplace of MA, he married Mary McMurtrie in N.J., 1736. He prospered as a shoemaker, farmer, and lawyer. The Whites built a most imposing home in the Warren Co., NJ, region, proudly named WHITE HALL. General (George) Washington was said to have stayed at WHITE HALL en route to his army encampment at Morristown, in 1780. William Henry Harrison, the Whig who opened up Ohio and Indiana for settlement after defeating the Shawnee Indians and Tecumseh at Tippecanoe, delivered a presidential campaign speech from the upper veranda of WHITE HALL.
