Isaac Kelly House

Built in 1841 by Isaac B. Kelly, the Isaac Kelly House (also known as the Kelly-Crost House) has been entered into the National Register of Historic Places and stands as one of the few reaming Greek revival structures within the Kenansville Historic District. What makes these Greek revival houses unique are the characteristics that are reminiscent of Greek architecture. This house, in particular, follows a 2-story symmetrical floor plan that can be even seen from the outside. The town as a whole was built upon a layout in 1818 with these houses in mind. The vision consisted of a central courthouse square with two main streets that intersected at the town square. However, this, unfortunately, did not translate well into modern times and these houses have become reminiscent of that vision by the towns original architects.

The Isaac Kelly House was formerly the home of Mr. William E. “Pot” Craft who was also a well-respected attorney in Kenansville for many years. After the unfortunate passing of Mrs. Craft in 2014, Hunter & Price, P.A. bought the house from the Craft children in 2015. Our firm spent a year restoring the house in coordination with the State Historic Preservation Office to achieve the most authentic results. The house’s restoration was completed in May of 2016, persevering the history of Duplin County and Kenansville as a whole.

The house has come to mean a lot to our lead attorneys as they believe the preservation of this house stands as a symbol of our town's history and as a commitment to our community moving forward. As this house is at the center of Kenansville and in the shadow of the Duplin County Courthouse, we believe there is no better site for our offices. Kenansville is a town full of history and Southern charm and our firm looks forward to upholding that tradition for many years to come.
