Chesterfield’s East Main Street Historic District contains twenty-two properties representing aspects of the development of the town of Chesterfield from ca. 1798 to 1937. The district, though mainly residential, also includes a church, the old Chesterfield Courthouse, the old Chesterfield Jail, the Bank of Chesterfield building and the post office. The Craig Family cemetery, containing graves of members of one of Chesterfield’s founding families, also is included in the district. The district contains some of Chesterfield’s finest architectural expression: the John Craig House, a hall-and-parlor farmhouse with excellent Federal style woodwork; the Chesterfield Courthouse with its Second Empire cupola; and several vernacular residences with Queen Anne and bungalow influence. The Chesterfield Post Office is a brick building designed by notable government architect Louis Simon. The original Chesterfield Courthouse, reputedly burned by General William T. Sherman’s troops in 1865, was the site of one of the state’s earliest secession meetings. A marker on the grounds of the current Chesterfield Courthouse commemorates that meeting. Listed in the National Register May 4, 1982.
