The Craik-Patton House is one of the finest historical attractions in Charleston and affords visitors a glimpse of city life in its infancy days. Completed in 1834, the house originally was where Reverend James Craik and his loved ones resided. The reverend had inherited the home?s plot from his friend, Dr. James Craik, who was a close friend and physician to President George Washington. In 1958, the property was purchased by Col. George Smith Patton, which eventually served as the birthplace of George Patton III, one of the greatest leaders during the Second World War.

Today, the historical attraction is known as Elm Grove and was restored to its original beauty by West Virginia?s National Society of the Colonial Dames of America.
