The Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization entrusted with oversight of the preservation, interpretation and daily operation of Craftsman Farms, the early 20th-century country estate of Gustav Stickley. The museum works in partnership with the Township of Parsippany-Troy Hills, which owns the site and rescued the property from private development in 1989, putting it on a path to public use.
Formerly, The Craftsman Farms Foundation, Inc., the Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms was formed in 1989. The property was designated a National Historic Landmark the following year. In 2019, the museum marked its 30th anniversary and is proud to welcome thousands of visitors from around the world to its interpretive programs, both onsite and online, each year.
Our mission at The Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms is to preserve, interpret, and make relevant the legacy and ideals of Gustav Stickley and the American Arts and Crafts movement by providing creative programming and authentic experiences that educate, engage, and inspire diverse audiences.
