Barrington will host an open house at the 115-year-old White House, 145 W. Main St., from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 16 and noon-3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 17. Among its many uses over the years was serving as a makeshift hospital during the influenza outbreak of 1918. The village bought the house in 2007 as part of its downtown revitalization efforts. This week, the village board approved a special use to renovate the house for use as a community and cultural center. The project is expected to be completed in time for the village's Sesquicentennial celebrations in 2015.
