1. White Plains Marker
Inscription. William Quarles, Revolutionary War officer, settled here ca. 1809, built a house, barns, general store, blacksmith shop, and school, and set up a post office. His residence was a noted inn along the old pike. When Putnam County was established in 1842, the site served as a county seat. Quarles' grandson, Stephen D. Burton, farmer, merchant, and slave trader, built this home before 1860.
