White Horse Historic District, also known as White Horse Village, is a national historic district located in Willistown Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania. It encompasses 15 contributing buildings and 1 contributing structure in the crossroads village of White Horse. They were built between 1798 and about 1950 and are mostly 2 1/2 or 3-story masonry structures clad in stucco. Seven of the contributing buildings are residences. The other contributing buildings include the former blacksmith shop (c. 1812 / 1848), White Horse Store and residence (1798), and White Horse Tavern (c. 1798). A number of the houses were renovated in the 1930s and 1940s by noted architect R. Brognard Okie (1875-1945).[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2001.[1]
