Welcome to the Craik - Patton House

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Craik - Patton House is a splendid example of Greek Revival architecture in the Kanawha River Valley of West Virginia. Constructed in 1834, the Craik- Patton House or "Elm Grove" as it was known then, was built downtown Charleston, Virginia, now West Virginia, by James Craik, grandson of Dr. James Craik close friend and personal physician to President George Washington. Later, the home was purchased by Confederate Colonel George S. Patton I, grandfather of WW2 General George S. Patton. It was moved twice but ultimately was saved by the National Society of Colonial Dames in America in the State of West Virginia (NSCDAWV) and moved in 1973 to its current location.
