White's Tavern, also known as Daniel White Tavern, is a historic former tavern on Hutchinson Road in Andover, Connecticut. It is a large 2-1/2 story wood frame structure, five bays wide, with two interior chimneys. The windows, rather than being uniformly spaced across the main facade, are evenly spaced within a narrower area than the full width of the building. The building has been divided into two living units. It was built in 1773 by Daniel White, and was in use as a tavern when the French Army marched through the area in 1781, camping just to the north of the tavern. The Marquis de Chastellux is known to be among the French officers who stayed here. The building is also architecturally significant as a well-preserved 18th century tavern house.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1991.[1] The adjoining stretch of Hutchinson Road is separated listed on the National Register.
