Had a picnic. friendly volunteers. Great passionate tour guide explained the interesting past present and future of the complex so learnt about architecture, design etc. Asked questions. Enjoyed pottery exhibition.Nice shop. Recommended.

Gustav Stickley, the father of the Arts and Crafts movement designed every detail and piece of furniture in this house. It has been painstakingly restored and makes a lovely and informative way to spend 2 hours. The docents are... 更多
This place is about the "craft" but no effort was made to display and showcase the "craft". Replicas of joinery work on to touch and feel the wood would certainly make it more interesting.
Nestled on the side of a mountain (hill?) overlooking Mount Tabor gives a great historical view of the life of an Industrial era family that chose life in "the mountains" to raise their family.
