Great visit to Gustav Stickley's house

Such a cool place to visit. One bummer is that you can't take pictures inside. You really can see the beauty of the Craftsman style home and furniture.

Grounds are beautiful and it was very interesting to learn about Mr Stickley, his philosophy and work. The issue was the tour guide (Kathy?) who was rather rude and perhaps embellished her facts a bit (Stickley was of the arts and crafts movement?) and perhaps dwelled a little much on details such as the wood grain of the piano. We... More

My visit was outstanding and I attribute that to our guide, Laura. She was SO knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. The museum is lucky to have someone like her. Hearing about the restoration process and learning more about the Stickley family was fascinating. If you love design, history and hidden treasures, this place is for you. Bring extra... More

Went there several years ago with people from my office, all Realtors. We enjoyed hearing about the history and seeing furniture created by him. Many pieces looked extremely uncomfortable to sit on. Good for history buffs, but older children might by interested this, too. Your forum does not permit answers about when one was there older than August 2015. It... More

My husband and I visited on a whim recently since we live in the area but have never seen the museum. Gustav Stickley, the father of the Arts and Crafts movement designed every detail and piece of furniture in this house. It has been painstakingly restored and makes a lovely and informative way to spend 2 hours. The docents are... More

This place is about the "craft" but no effort was made to display and showcase the "craft". Replicas of joinery work on to touch and feel the wood would certainly make it more interesting.

Nestled on the side of a mountain (hill?) overlooking Mount Tabor gives a great historical view of the life of an Industrial era family that chose life in "the mountains" to raise their family.

Beautiful setting for a Craftman home. Our tour guide was exceptionally well informed. I learned so much about Gustafson Stickley. The historic preservation society has retuned this home to its original state and managed to get some of the furnishings back. gorgeous. The home is. Only open by tour Thurs to Sunday. It is well worth planning your visit.

The Stickley Museum is a lovingly curated collection of furniture and other pieces designed by Gustave Stickley, an American heavily involved in the Arts and Crafts movement on the site and in the building that Stickley designed for lofty purposes . It is staffed mostly by volunteers with a love of the place and its history. Highly recommended!
