The Asa White House is a historic home in Eutaw, Alabama. It is also known as the White-McGiffert House, but it is mostly historically significant for being built in 1838 by the Greene County pioneer Asa White.

Asa White played a major role in establishing Eutaw as a town instead of just a community or settlement. He gave 20 acres from his property so the county seat could build a courthouse, a commercial district, and a couple of civic buildings. Most residential lots in the area are also once a part of his property. This makes him one of the most important individuals in Eutaw?s history.

The Asa White House may be a simple two-story frame building but it was of great historical significance. It was recorded in the Historic American Buildings Survey in 1936 and then became a part of the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.
