Craigie House

The Craigie House is a historic home located at 1204 Daughters of the American Revolution, and is the second-oldest DAR structure in the United States. Historians believe parts of the home were brought from the park after the 1895 Cotton States Exposition was held there.

It is listed on the renovate the interior for use as a private home while preserving the exterior.[1]

During the February 2014 winter storm, most of the building collapsed, except for the front façade. The combination of snow, sleet, and freezing rain apparently triggered the disaster, which did not injure anyone since it was still vacant during renovations, and at night, with workers (and nearly all Atlantans) having stayed at home for the day due to the storm. The owner still intends to at least save the historic front when rebuilding.[2][3]
