Torrence & Dulcina White Home


Address: 13251 Ralston Rd., Arvada, 80002

This gentleman-farmer's brick home, constructed in 1879, replaced the 1870 log cabin, where six of the 11 White children were born. Rubin Craig, owner of Craig Chevrolet, purchased the acreage in 1946 and named it "Maplelawn" for the grove of maple trees on the property. Later it changed hands again and was converted into a restaurant, preserving the early country atmosphere: fine oak woodwork; large fireplace; spacious rooms with floral wallpaper, adorned with century-old pictures of the White family. In 1993 it became, Morningside Manor and is appropriately used for receptions, weddings and special events. Das Meyer Fine Pastry is also located on the premises.
