Our History:

In 1979, John and Donna Clark bought a Civil War vintage home at 395 Old State Road in Canton where they raised their seven children. In 1994, when the first of the children left for college, Donna and John converted that one empty bedroom to a bed and breakfast room. Today, with twelve bedrooms/suites in three adjacent buildings on 160 acres, along with 4 waterfront cottages on nearby lake and river, White Pillars Lodging is home to a wide variety of travelers.
