The Craigie House is located at 1204 Piedmont Avenue close to 14th Street and across from Piedmont Park.
Before the Craigie House, there was an initial, temporary chapter house built by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for the Cotton States Exposition, which was held in Piedmont Park around the turn of the century.
The Craigie House, named after the boarding house in Massachusetts where Henry Wadsworth Longfellow boarded for years, was built in 1911 and used for many years as the Atlanta Chapter house.
After a tree fell on the house in 1985, the building deteriorated and became unusable by the Atlanta Chapter. Despite valiant efforts by the Atlanta-Journal Constitution, WXIA-TV and other community leaders and groups, the Atlanta Chapter sold the Craigie House to Inman Park Properties in 2001.
The Craigie House was listed on the "2001 List of Endangered Buildings" by the Atlanta Preservation Center.
