1 Church Street The White House Inn, designed by renowned architect Calvin Ryder and built in 1840 by John Patterson White, a former Mayor and favorite son of Belfast, is a strikingly handsome and beautifully detailed house. Its listing with the National Register of Historic Places was awarded in 1973 based on its contribution as one of the finest examples of Greek revival style in Maine.
Marble fireplaces, deep plaster moldings, columns and signature Ryder stairway define this spacious Inn. This magnificently conceived and executed manor stands proudly in the historic district of Belfast on an acre of beautifully manicured lawn complete with an antique gazebo. The Inn is located five blocks from Main Street where a profusion of art galleries, unique shops, trendy cafes, and sailing and fishing boats greet the visitor.
