David White House was a home of geologist David White (1862-1935).

It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1976 for its association with White, who lived there from about 1910 to 1925. White lived in Washington from 1886 to 1935; this was where he lived the longest period. The house is a three-story brick row house, with a semicircular bay rising to a slate-shingled turret. It is not regarded as special in its architecture.[2][3]
