At the dawn of the 20th century William R. Davidson, a judge from Greencastle, PA, traveled to the deep south. He was profoundly impressed by the civil war era plantations he saw on his trip. On returning home he decided to create an antebellum style mansion in his hometown. Davidson built the three story White Hall Manor in 1906. The wide central hall extends to the attic where three gabled windows overlook the circular driveway that leads up to a 45’ wide brick front porch. Four massive Greek style columns frame the front entrance which includes a large iron lantern suspended from the front overhanging balcony. In the entrance hallway mahogany pocket doors lead to a spacious dining room with a fireplace and crystal chandelier on the east side and a 36’ long Great Room with a marble fireplace on the west side. Ten foot ceilings throughout the house are highlighted by custom cove molding. Original wood floors compliment the plastered walls and ornate woodwork.
