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-framed structure, five bays wide with two interior chimneys. The windows are evenly spaced within a narrower area than the full width of the building, rather than being uniformly spaced across the main facade. 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 was among the French officers who stayed here. The building is also architecturally significant as a well-preserved 18th century tavern house.[2]
