Built by John Lilly, Sr. in 1835-36, it was the home of Alfred Beckley (1802-88) and Amelia Neville Craig. Son of John Beckley, first clerk of the House of Representatives, he founded the town of Beckley and wrote the bill proposing formation of Raleigh County. An 1823 West Point graduate, he rose to rank of Brig. Gen. in the Civil War. Listed on National Register in 1971, and opened as a House Museum in 1986.
