Long Description:
NRHP Nomination Form

"The 1940 White House building, a former department store, is a high style example of the Streamline Moderne style. The four-story brick veneered building has a dramatic rounded corner detailed with three large fluted limestone spandrel panels that divide ribbon bands of windows on the third and fourth floors. The fenestration on floors two through four is two-over two, horizontal light metal windows arranged in continuous bands either side of the rounded comer. The two outermost comers of the building and the rounded comer rise slightly higher above the parapet; all three raised elements are detailed with a cast stone or limestone pie-crust-crimping detailing. Despite alterations to the ground floor storefront, the building retains a high degree of architectural integrity. The municipal court currently uses the building."
