The Craftsman: Mr. Stickley’s Vision Tour
Celebrating New Jersey's 350th Anniversary
Saturdays, June 21 & 28, 2014
NEW DATE ADDED: October 25
Advance registration required.
In conjunction with the year-long statewide celebration, we offer this comprehensive tour of Craftsman Farms that takes a closer look at Gustav Stickey's life in New Jersey. The tour will highlight his innovations as a designer of furniture, home goods and family homes in the early 20th century and explore why Stickley decided to build his dream home in the Garden State.
The tour begins on the original entry road to the mile-square property, where attendees will be introduced to the broad scope of Mr. Stickley’s plans for Craftsman Farms, which drew on a combination of time honored wisdom as well as modern technology. Having grown up as a poor farm child and manual laborer, Mr. Stickley was keenly aware of the plight of the worker, and went to great lengths to build Craftsman Farms in a way that took some of the drudgery out of house and farm work. This tour includes an opportunity to visit the interiors of the two bedroom North Cottage as well as his family home, the Log House, which is the centerpiece of the property.
This tour is recommended for adults and children age 12 and up.
Please note: This is a 2-1/2 to 3-hour comprehensive experience that includes tours of two building interiors, moderate outdoor walking, and periods of extended standing. The tour will run in the case light rain.
Advance reservations are required. Reserve your spot by purchasing your tickets today.
