Gustav Stickley dreamed a dream. Motivated by a desire to preserve a lifestyle that encouraged hands-on work, education and the joy of living in harmony with nature, Stickley planned and built Craftsman Farms –– the only location where he saw his vision come to life.
Today the Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms is fulfilling Stickley’s dream by offering experiences that teach the value of craftsmanship, of integrity of design and of an honest life. Our high quality children’s activities stimulate creative thinking, open children’s minds to new ideas, help them grasp the concepts of history and deeply enrich their lives.
We also offer high-quality adult programming including scholarly lectures, book-signings, hands-on workshops, and unique demonstrations, as well as outreach programs to Senior Centers and small exhibits on and off site. Our steady growth in attendance and membership are clear affirmations that others recognize the significance of this historic site and our mission to fulfill Stickley’s dream.
The Farms’ future depends on individuals like you. Restoring, interpreting, and operating this National Historic Landmark is not inexpensive. And with government support dramatically cut it is extremely challenging! The most basic operations, interpretation, and the daily care of our thirty-acre site costs approximately $1,300 each and every day of the year!
That is why I am asking you to partner with the Craftsman Farms Foundation to care for this irreplaceable piece of America’s heritage and make a gift today.
