ArchitectureRichmond: The Adam Craig House

08/07/2017 8:38 AM by

ArchitectureRichmond has a look at the architecture and history of the Adam Craig House:

For a hint of what 18th century Richmond might have looked like there are few better places to examine than the Adam Craig House, an evocative dwelling that sits kitty-corner at the southeast corner of the intersection of East Grace and North 19th streets in Shockoe Bottom. Its lot fills a quarter of the city block, a configuration that follows the establishment of the city grid system of 1737.

The date of the houses is subject to question but it may have been built in 1784, two years after its owner, Adam Craig, moved from Williamsburg to Richmond.
