The ‘mystery’ behind the White House

Historic building with rich history now serves as office space for local professionals

You may have noticed the big white house nestled between the trees right in the middle of Lyndon Golf Course on Route 5 and wondered, “What is that building, anyway?” It’s called the White House, named after Ernest Ingersoll White, who built it as a summer home and farm in 1904. White believed that there would eventually be a lot of development on Syracuse’s east side, and wanted to create a “green belt” amongst all of the buildings and asphalt.
