Volunteer at Craftsman Farms!

The Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms is the early 20th century home of Gustav Stickley, and one of the premier sites of the American Arts & Crafts Movement, which aimed at reforming society through the design of the home and its furnishings. The Farms is a National Historic Landmark and a Save America’s Treasures site. After undergoing a major restoration in 2004, the Museum is now poised to advance its mission by exploring how Stickley’s beliefs apply to life in the 21st century.
