Dr. Craig on his porch
Craig Home in 1896

Certainly no one living remembers Dr. Craig, but nearly everyone in town knows his home, and many remember it in different ways. The home, at the corner of Third and Mulberry, was built in 1890 of handmade bricks in a style that combined qualities from both Victorian and Queen Anne architecture.

When Dr. Craig died in 1918 his house remained a residence until the 1940s when it began a professional career housing sequentially a number of businesses, including a prominent insurance agency.

Then & Now: Dr Craig's home

Since 1978 Dr. Craig’s landmark has been the home of the Chamber of Commerce, currently named Richland Area Chamber of Commerce.
