Craik-Patton House is a historic home located at Charleston, West Virginia. It was built about 1834 in the Greek Revival style. It was originally located on Virginia Street in Charleston, but moved to its present site in 1973 to save it from the threat of demolition. It features four massive columns that support the extended center roof with pilasters placed above the front facade. It was faithfully restored and preserved for the public by the Colonial Dames of America in the state of West Virginia and open for tours from April through October.
It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1970.

  • The tour was very nice and informative. The guide did a great job and let us see all of the available areas including the cabin, all at our own pace. It helped that we were there only ones on the tour too, we had his undivided attention. I'm glad we took the time to check it out.
  • Amazing property with tremendous history. The guide was a true historian who knew so much about not just the home and family, but the whole area. Worth your stop if ever in Charleston.
