“Going east from the A. H. White property on East White Street, we come to the large, two,-,story residence of Prof. and Mrs. Edward Walter Hall, with entrances from both Reid and White streets. Mr. and Mrs. Hall’s daughter Josie lived here with her husband, Walter C. Sullivan, and their two daughters. Mr. Sullivan succeeded his father-in-law, Mr. Hall, as principal of Rock Hill High School in 1922.” [Robbins – White History Tour]
The Rock Hill Record reported on May 17, 1904 – “That contractor J.S. Starr has the contract to erect a dwelling with 12-13 rooms for Prof. E.W. Hall on the corner of White Street and the new street that has just been opened from Main to White (Reid Street). We were in error sometime ago when we stated, that Capt. A.D. Holler had this contract.”
The Record reported on Feb. 7, 1907 – “Mrs. W.W. Boyce and Mrs. E.W. Hall will receive friends next Thursday at 330 East White Street.”
