We are turning 30 and we want you to be at our party! The Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms is turning 30-years-old this month and we’re launching a full year of celebration at our annual pre-conference party.

Join us to kick off the 32nd National Arts and Crafts Conference at the Grove Park Inn for “BBQ, Brew, Bluegrass and Friends.”  We’ll be in the Skyline Room at the Grove Park Inn on February 14 at a new time: 7:00 p.m.

Our 30th Anniversary party will include:

  • BBQ and Southern comfort food Asheville style

Proceeds from this event support preservation, collections care and the daily operations of the Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms. We are an historic house museum on the campus of Craftsman Farms in Parsippany, New Jersey. Designed and built by Gustav Stickley in 1911, Craftsman Farms was founded to be home, farm, school and community that embodied his Arts and Crafts vision. It was his “Garden of Eden” and is today a National Historic Landmark.


Craftsman Farms was rescued from private development in 1989 by the Township of Parsippany – Troy Hills and the Craftsman Farms Foundation—today the Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms—was established the preserve and interpret the property. For 30 years, we have proudly shared the story and legacy of Gustav Stickley and the American Arts and Crafts movement with visitors from around the world.

We’re looking forward to 30 more years of the Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms but first, it’s time to celebrate! Please join us.
