Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms

Visit this 30-acre landmark and learn about Gustav Stickley and the American Arts and Crafts movement. Built in 1911, the home, known as the Log House, serves as a museum space featuring a growing collection of crafts, including textiles, pottery, and metalwork. Tours for older groups focus on history, art, architecture, or a particular craft, while younger groups get to handle and investigate objects. Scout programs at Stickley can cover a variety of topics, including manners and etiquette, Progressive Era history, and book arts.
