Craig Farm (BE 315)

Craig Farm The Craig Farm is located on Beaver Road in the East Bend area of Boone County.

It was built in the mid-19th century on a side-passage plan with Greek Revival details. It features a long saltbox ell. The recessed entrance is framed by four-pane sidelights, and the windows contain 6/6 panes.

The farm also includes a cluster of 20th century outbuildings related to dairy farming, including a corncrib with a locally rare painted advertising sign.

A family graveyard includes the resting place of Revolutionary War veteran John Hawkins Craig, an early settler who received a land grant for his military service.
