White House (styilzed as WHITEHOUSE) is a New Jersey Transit railroad station on the Raritan Valley Line, in the Whitehouse Station section Readington Township in Hunterdon County, New Jersey, United States. The station is on the west side of Main Street in the center and the station building has subsequently been turned into a branch library for the Hunterdon County Library system. This station has limited weekday service and no weekend service.

The building was designed for the Central Railroad of New Jersey in the Richardson Romanesque style by Bradford Gilbert who is best known for having designed the first steel-framed curtain wall building, but who also designed at least six railroad stations. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.
