Philip Craft House is a simple hall-parlor-plan dwelling built in the early 19th century with unusual use of rounded bricks that cap the top of the water table and course the top of the chimney haunches. Of German ancestry, Philip Craft married into a family of English origin and purchased land on Cherrystone Creek, where he apparently built the house in 1819. Craft continued to occupy the brick story-and-a-half dwelling until he deeded the land to his daughter and son-in-law in 1856.
