I had an excellent tour of the Stickley Museum by a very well informed docent. The entire tour takes a little over an hour and if early turn of the 20th century Arts and Crafts style is your thing, make sure to take time to visit it. The grounds are very nice but currently, the lodge house (which the Stickleys... More

Visited The Stickley Museum as Craftsman Farms today. I've always been interested in Mr. Stickley's furniture and the Mission Oak style. I had been meaning to take the short trip to this museum for several years now and I'm glad I did. The Docent leading the tour was extremely knowledgeable and affable. She seemed genuinely interested in both Stickley and... More

Landscaping and buildings in rural setting exemplify Arts and Crafts movement. Stickley designed furniture and houses using browns and greens. Four fireplaces are adorned with large bronze and copper hoods carrying hammered philosophical messages about life and work. The log house was the home of Gustav Stickley, his wife and children for about a decade. The original furniture reflects careful... More

I visited Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms in the summer of 2008, I enjoyed it so much on my first visit I returned 2 more times that same summer dragging along other family members. After my 3 visits, I was so entranced by the grounds and the log house, the history of the Arts & Crafts Movement and Gus himself... More

We squeezed this tour into a tight schedule in Princeton, and are so glad that we did! Anyone who has interest in the Arts & Crafts Movement, Architecture, Self Sufficiency, Sustainability, or History should take this tour. Our guide was excellent. The tour included a brief walk outside, then a tour of all the 1st floor spaces and most of... More

This is valued for its house and famous furniture style. There are tours and special exhibits sometimes. Highlights a famous style of building, how a family lived in times past, and provides some area history. Beautiful piece of land and a nice place to walk around on a tour.

This is the home of Gustav Stickley - wonderful home brought to life with interesting docents who provided great details on this man's life and craft. A surprising amount of original furnishings and the home brought back to the times of Stickley. Good tour around including the upstairs bedrooms - all very interesting. Nice yard to stroll while waiting for... More

If you are not familiar with Gustav Stickley, then you must see his farm and learn the history of how it came to be. Lots of original pieces of furniture with the house. A wonderful time learning about the Arts and Crafts movement of the early 1900's begun by Stickley in the US.

I have taken my girl scout troop here twice for special programs and they really make history come alive. The regular walk in tour, might not be appropriate for the elementary and middle school set, but their special programs designed for middle schoolers are perfectly catered to their age. My scouts went to their Stickley Tea Party and Travels in... More
