Organization of the Week: Craftsman Farms Foundation, Inc.

Every Monday, I highlight a non-profit related to history or the arts, a historical society, preservation group or friends group whose main objective is to promote the historical and artistic history of New Jersey.

This week, I am featuring the Craftsman Farms Foundation, Inc. The Foundation’s mission is to interpret, restore, and preserve Craftsman Farms in Parsippany-Troy Hills, New Jersey and the artifacts, ideals, and continuing relevance associated with Gustav Stickley and the Arts and Crafts movement.

The Foundation maintains and operates this National Historic Landmark on a daily basis, offering regular and themed tours throughout the year, special events, and programming. The Museum’s growing collection includes numerous Stickley furnishings, many which are original to the Log House, plus textiles, pottery, metalwork, and archival materials, some of which are displayed in changing exhibits throughout the year.

The Craftsman Farms Foundation, Inc. relies on memberships, fundraising, and countless volunteers to continue its mission. For more information on programs, special events, and exhibits hosted by the Craftsman Farms Foundation, Inc. or to become a member or volunteer, please call 973-540-0311 or visit www.stickleymuseum.org.

If you are a member of a non-profit organization or know of one that you would like to see featured on this site, please let us know in the comments or send an e-mail to kelly@thehistorygirl.com.
