Most likely built in the 1840s, the house's location on the corner of East High and North Park Street is its second site.  It was originally constructed on one of the lots where the Knox County Memorial Building now stands.  The Critchfield Home was moved soon after plans were made to create the Memorial Building.  This Federal style house has seen many additions over the years, including a Greek Revival portico supported by round Tuscan columns.  Adding to the Greek Revival entrance are sidelights and transom framing the door.  An enclosed two story sun porch was added to the eastern side of the home sometime in the early-20th century, and has since been enclosed using Neo-Classical design elements.
