J.F. White Home

Address: 7001 Grandview Ave., Arvada, 80002

Elizabeth (Clemens) and Rev. J.F. White, formerly of Penryn, Cornwall, England, came to Colorado in 1876. Rev. White served as a minister in Silver Plume, Idaho Springs, Longmont, Golden and Black Hawk before he and his family moved to Arvada in 1890. A two-story house was built for him in 1893 on Grandview Avenue. This home is in very good condition: pillared front porch across the width of the house; and noticable gingerbread under the gabled roof on the south, east, and west sides. White is given credit for being the original editor of “The Arvada Enterprise,” July 3, 1908, and was also president of the First State Bank in 1925.
