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 in 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 WWII General George S. Patton. It was saved by the National Society of Colonial Dames of America in the State of West Virginia (NSCDA-WV) and moved to its current location in 1973.
The Craik-Patton House, in association with Preserve WV, is an AmeriCorps Site Project.
