Captain White / Emma Holt White House -

Captain White / Emma Holt White House -
One white bench on the porch --
Now an Arts Center -- built in the late 1700's --

Was built for Emma Holt and her spouse, Capt. White --
By her Father, Industrialist, Edwin Holt --

Down the street is another similar style home --
Also built by Edwin Holt --
For Elizabeth Holt and her spouse --
It has been refurbished and is a bank --

Have been told by local historians --
The 3rd home built for another daughter of Edwin Holt --
Was beyond repair --
No longer exists --
Land occupied by something-or-other (a business or gov. building) - really don't know.

At one time the Holt family had a large amount of acreage in this part of the city.

The Holt name is still quite prominent (i.e. David Holt - musician) -

Ah, Sir Richard of the Land of Lakes .... go around Lake M ( where all the cool birds are ) and knock on one of those stately homes... Tell them you would just like to sit awhile on their porch.
There is a brick one, think the corner of Success, that already has a bench out front. (think the lawyer who has his business just down the road) lives there... you can tell him I suggested his place as the family is very nice ( at least his father - E.Snow Martin is )....
