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

We visited last week and were amazed by the tour of the Log House. Pat, our tour docent was great and very informative. We weren't expecting much and were pleasantly surprised by the museum's collection of Stickley furniture. Kudos to the town for maintaining such a gem. Definitely worth a visit and great way to spend an hour or two.

We had lived less than a mile from this museum for more than six years before we finally got there. As a major piece of North Jersey history, our visit was long overdue. The tour through the house and around the grounds brought to life much of what Sticklely did to contribute to this area's history. He had quite a... More

Very much enjoyed our tour of the museum. The museum had been the Stickley home, although the original intent was for it to become a school. In addition to being very well versed in the history of the house and its contents, our excellent guide shared stories about the family and the process the museum has gone through to reclaim... More
