The Historic White-Pool House
A Cornerstone of Odessa History since 1887
The White-Pool House is a non-profit organization and is run through the continuing support of the community. We do not charge for admission because we believe that our history should be available to every member of the community. Donations are always accepted and greatly appreciated. All funds go towards the continuing restoration and maintenance of the museum complex. To make a donation, please click on the Paypal link below to be directed to our donation page, or contact the museum staff. Thank you!
We always have volunteer opportunities in a wide variety of areas. From gardening, cleaning, or museum docent volunteers, there is a place for everyone. Please be in touch if you are interested in volunteering.
We are a designated volunteer site for the Texas Scholars Program. If you are in need of volunteer hours, please contact the Museum Manager.
We are a small, dedicated, all-volunteer Board of Directors that has a passion to see this historic home remain a part of Odessa for years to come. We deeply appreciate your help. Without your assistance, it would take us significantly longer to reach our goals to preserve, protect, and promote The Historic White-Pool House Museum.

The White-Pool House has many sponsorship opportunities.
The museum would like to thank the generosity of our current sponsors because without their continuing support, we would not be where we are today!
