White Family Cottage // c.1920

About a decade after the White Family Estate in Waterford was built, artist Henry Cooke White, a painter, designed and had this summer cottage built on part of his land. The gambrel roofed Shingle style house was likely used by family and friends when they would visit Henry at his mansion on the water, which he spent nearly all his time at painting. The house, along with the other homes built for the White Family, remain in the family’s ownership and are very well-preserved.
