History of Whitehall 

Manor Homes at Whitehall is located in an area of Beverly, Massachusetts known as Beverly Cove, just west of Beverly Farms and Prides Crossing, which is one of earliest settled areas of Beverly. Nearby Hale Street, presumably an old Indian trail, was in use as early as 1640.

Since the late seventeen century a building has stood on the site. The property was owned by members of the Foster family starting in the late 1700s.

In 1909, Francis I. Amory built a large summer house on the hill. Amory, from Boston, was a member of an old Boston Brahmin family. Sometime in the late 1920s, Frederick C. and Evelyn F. Barlett of Chicago bought the property and named it Whitehall.

Frederick Bartlett, a wealthy businessman, was an avid art collector and painter. Evelyn Bartlett was also a painter and together they painted, traveled and exhibited their work. Her work showed at the John Heron Art Museum in Indianapolis, the Wildenstein & Company Galleries in New York, and at the couple's own studio (the Foster House) in Beverly, Massachusetts.
