The First National Bank of Vidalia, Georigi, designed by Crutchfield, built in 1910

Ivey P. Crutchfield (1878-1952)[1] was an American architect and builder who worked in Georgia and Florida. Several of his works are listed on the National Register of Historic Places for their architecture.

He was born in Wilkinson County, Georgia. He was a regional architect-builder with many works in Vidalia, Georgia and with several residential works throughout Toombs County, Georgia. He learned the building trade apparently on his own and did not have formal architect training, but he felt qualified by 1916 to post signage that he was one. He died in Fort Myers, Florida in 1952.[1]

A 1996 National Register nomination noted that "Crutchfield's buildings are easily recognizable for his use of fine Neoclassical detailing and marble, and their grand scale compared to surrounding buildings."[2]
