Anyone Know Anything About Dunwhite?

We’ve been talking to Gary Johnson about when highway 29 south changed routes.  The old route when straight and then veered to the right and came out at Southside Baptist Church.  The “new” route apparently opened prior to 1940.  This is the current highway which goes under a railroad underpass, past the Methodist Church, and past UAHT.

While discussing the route, Gary asked if we’d seen this sign on the old route.  It says “Dunwhite”.  Was this a community south of Hope?  Remember, when the high school was built in 1931, it was essentially out of town so a community a mile or two south wouldn’t have been unusual.  Does anyone have any information?  Please share it with us if you do.
