Quoit Club Tour: Adam Craig House Thursday, March 17, 2011, 6 – 8pm

Join the Quoit Club for an exclusive tour given by local historian Harry Kollatz, Jr. of the Adam Craig House, one of Richmond’s oldest private residences. Adam Craig’s daughter, Jane Craig, was the subject of Edgar Allan Poe’s “To Helen.” In 1935, the house faced demolition. The William Byrd Branch of the APVA was created specifically to save the property. The Federal-style structure sits on a half-acre, beautifully landscaped, fenced lot in Shockoe Bottom. The event begins at 6:00 p.m. Drinks and hors d’ouerves will be served.
