The foggy weather didn't dampen our spirits as friends and family shared stories about the walkway's namesake, Ruth Cruess Glesmann.  The ceremony reminded us of the importance of educating each new generation in the Arts & Crafts lifestyle.

Ruth Cruess Glesmann Memorial Walkway Dedication

Sunday, October 6
11:00 a.m.

RCG Walkway

This year’s Friends Open House will kick off with the dedication of the Ruth Cruess Glesmann Memorial Walkway.  We invite you to join a very special gathering of Stickley descendents for a champagne toast and ribbon cutting ceremony at the Education Building at 11 a.m.   Mrs. Glesmann, who passed away in 2012, was the last surviving family member to have lived at Craftsman Farms during Stickley’s time here. She will be permanently remembered on the property thanks to the generous gifts of her children Cynthia McGinn, Louis Glesmann, and Nancy Calderwood. Participants in the ceremony will each receive a gift of Mrs. Glesmann’s favorite flower, a yellow rose.

Immediately following the dedication ceremony, we will host the annual Friends Open House, with docents stationed throughout. We look forward to seeing you!

By the way, our Pathway to Education project is ongoing, and engravable bluestone paving stones are still available. Learn more and order your stone today!
