This basic tour lasts approximately 1-¼ hour and takes visitors through the two main floors of Stickley's dream home, offering an in-depth look at Stickley's life and work. Our knowledgeable docents afford every visitor the opportunity to ask questions and discuss areas of interest.

This after-hours tour offers new and returning visitors a rare treat. We begin at twilight in the North Cottage before visiting Gustav Stickley's Log House in the evening, when the amber light of the copper lanterns shines most beautifully.


Part of our Fresh Eyes Tour Series, created to provide insightful new ways to see and experience the Log House, the Twilight Tour explores the development of electricity in New Jersey, and the part it played in daily life at Craftsman Farms.


Make it a date! Bring your significant other and you're sure to see sparks fly during this electric evening. Then linger in the Museum Shop for light refreshments following the program.


Note: This tour occurs mostly indoors, inside two historic homes on the property. A brief span is spent walking outdoors, traveling to and from the two buildings.
