New Jersey is a state with a rich history, and some of America's most influential figures have made their homes here at one point or another. Gustav Stickley is one of the most prestigious New Jersey residents in history, as one of the leading figures in the American arts and crafts movement of the early 20th century. Today, history buffs and furniture aficionados can learn all about the history of this great American furniture designer and craftsman at Craftsman Farms in Parsippany-Troy Hills, Morris County.

Our Parsippany DWI defense lawyers love the following aspects of The Stickley Museum:

History of Craftsman Farms

Craftsman Farms is a log home which was built on 26 acres in 1911. Gustav Stickley built this house as a farm school for boys, using chestnut logs and local stone found on site. The main house on the estate was used as a "clubhouse" where workers, students, and guests could gather together for meals, meetings, and other activities. With spacious living and dining rooms measuring 50 feet, copper-hooded fireplaces, and tasteful decor, this log home was a natural meeting place. There was also a porch which opened to a farm vista, allowing for natural light and breezes to blow through.

Today, Craftsman Farms is a designated National Historic Landmark. It is also an Official Project of Save America's Treasures, which is a public-private partnership between the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the White House Millenium Council. This project focuses on preserving unique historic and cultural landmarks so that our children and grandchildren can enjoy them.
