 The Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms is a 30-acre National Historic Landmark, and the centerpiece of Gustav Stickley’s early 20th century country estate. Stickley was a major figure in the American Arts and Crafts movement who combined the roles of designer, manufacturer, architect, publisher, philosopher, and social critic. The Arts and Crafts movement represented more than a beautiful sense of style, design and craftsmanship. Theories and dreams abounded, too. The movement is inseparable from the social, civic and economic reforms and experiments that occurred at the same time. Indeed, his massive Log House stands not only as a house that briefly became home to Gustav Stickley and his family, but also as a symbol of an important dream.
