Since its inception The Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms has collected objects and artifacts that help to bring the history of Craftsman Farms and the career of Gustav Stickley to life. The collection consists of three main areas that total more than 6,000 objects. Our focus continues to be on items owned by Gustav Stickley, made or sold by Gustav Stickley’s companies, or that are representative of the Arts and Crafts movement, especially those produced or used in the United States. The museum is particularly interested in expanding its subcollections of ceramics, metalwork, textiles and furniture with examples that directly strengthen its ability to fulfill its organizational mission.
Visitors to the Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms experience the permanent collection– furniture, metalwork, textiles, and ceramics–through their tours of the Log House. The collection includes pieces original to the Log House, like the custom sideboard and corner cabinets in the dining room, as well as the work of various ceramists and textile workers.
