History of White House Tennessee

Richard Stone Wilks, was a settler originally from Virginia.  He and others from Virginia, Kentucky and North Carolina began to settle in middle Tennessee in 1828.  A Indian and buffalo trail ran from Kentucky to Nashville.   This trail was later referred to as the Louisville and Nashville (L&N) Turnpike during the mid-1800s.  In 1928, it became US Highway 31W.    In 1838 through 1858, the Carter Thomas Hough Stage Coach line traveled the L&N Turnpike carrying passengers.  One stop along the route for lodging, food and to change horses was a two-story house built around 1829 by Mr. Wilks.  The house was painted white, which was uncommon during this time.  Stage coach drivers began refering to this stop and the surrounding area as White House.
