The White Place Historic District is a residential historic district in Bloomington, Illinois. The district mainly includes houses along White Place, Clinton Boulevard, and Fell Avenue. These houses were largely built between 1895 and 1928, and many of them were built shortly after S. R. White platted White Place. The homes in the district were designed in a variety of architectural styles; styles prominently featured in the district include Prairie School, American Craftsman, Colonial Revival, and Spanish Colonial. Many of these houses were kit houses which were ordered from mail-order catalogs with premade designs.[2]

The district was added to the National Register of Historic Places on August 12, 1988.[1]
