A small museum, like this one, must have a compelling story to tell- this one has that story, the vision of Gustav Stickley and the legacy of the the wonderful aesthetic perspective that survives 100 years past his most important work. It also must have excellent docents- and this one has that, too, as Pete was filled with informative/amusing anecdotes... More

Craftsman Farms plays an important role in the early 1900's arts & crafts movement, when Gustav Stickley formed his school in Parsippany. The house was designed and built by Stickley, and shows the quintessential elements of architecture of that era, which reminded me of Frank Lloyd Wright designed homes (not quite prairie school, with Stickley's building more rustic but equally...

What a great place to visit!! Gustav Stickley was a very innovative man & the home he built, now a museum is demonstrative of his talents. We took the 1:15 tour on a Friday & we were the only one's on our tour. Our docent, Peter has a wealth of knowledge about the farm, it's occupants & the contents of... More

Another place I've driven by a million times in the many years I've lived around this area. I invited a friend to eat something and do the 12:15 tour which we did. You pay in the gift shop (a lot of interesting, but mostly very over-priced stuff with the exception of some beautiful walking sticks they had) and we got... More

A wonderful museum with many excellent examples of Gustav Stickley's work, The guided tour is excellent and the grounds are lovely. Drive past the little house you first see, bear left and you will see the main building and parking. Nice gift shop as well.

Gustav Stickley is considered the chief figure in the Arts and Crafts Movement. The Movement was an anti-industrial movement, which emphasized handicrafts, simplicity and local materials.... More

Just visited the Stickley home and grounds today with a small group of friends. Everyone enjoyed the tour with our very knowledgeable docent, Kathy. I had been to the site many years ago & was happy to see many new pieces of furniture & accessories . Was delighted to hear about the family life and features of the Farm. Great... More

Went on an extended tour and was so impressed with knowledge of the staff. What a great morning in beautiful woods right in Parsippany. Had always been interested in Stickley furniture and the craftsmen style.
