One of Chesterfield´s earliest houses, the Wm. Duke Craig House, c.1820, stood here before it was moved in 1975. Craig (1845-1935), farmer and merchant, also owned the nearby Craig´s Grist Mill. He fought in the Civil War with the 21st Regiment, S.C. Infantry, Co. E. In 1933,. he donated the land for Craig Park, just north on Page Street. Altered through the years, the house now stands on county property, some 500 yds. N.
