In our 31st year, as we proudly open our new Education Center, the Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms is on the cusp of transformation inside and out. The Gala’s red dragonfly motif represents this period of transformation and rejuvenation. 

Join us to celebrate the grand opening of the Center, a beautiful new “gateway” to the Craftsman Farms property!

At its upper level, the Center will house the museum’s new library and storage for its collections. Its lower level will feature a multi-use conference room and 100-seat program facility. While global pandemic has closed the Log House doors for tours, it has presented transformative opportunities to connect and engage online with Stickley fans around the world. We invite you to become part of this new era at the Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms. Support the museum during this crucial time and become part of our transformation.
