Whitehall Rating: None

Constructed around the year of 1928, the Whitehall is a building commissioned by one of the Chicago Tribune owners, Robert R. McCormick. The structure, even when it was new, was known to be an architectural gem, especially since it has allowed its designer, Willis Irvin, to win the Gold Medal for Domestic Work from the 1929 Southern Architectural Exhibition.

However, the Whitehall can trace its history even before the 1920s. It was built on the foundations of an older, two-story, building that was razed down by fire.

Currently, the Whitehall, a one story, Georgian Revival house, is a part of the National Register of Historic Places. It was listed in 1984 and is now currently a part of the Historic Aiken Tour.
