Whitehall was the home of the eminent early modern philosopher George Berkeley, who hoped to found a college in the colonies, between 1729 and 1731. Whitehall is open to the public July 1 - August 31. Resident scholars who are members of the International Berkeley Society give tours Wednesday through Sunday. The house is open at other times by appointment.
