Crab Tree Farm Virtual Tour
Saturday, August 22 | 4PM EDT

 

The extraordinary Harvey Ellis Bungalow is located on the grounds of the privately owned Crab Tree Farm in Lake Bluff, Illinois. On the virtual tour, you will have an opportunity to explore this remarkable structure, which was constructed using Ellis’ original designs — published in a December 1903 article in Gustav Stickley’s The Craftsman — as well as the bungalow’s exemplary period interiors. An early 20th century dairy farm in Lake Bluff, Illinois, Crab Tree Farm’s original buildings, which were designed by noted Chicago architect Solon Spencer Beman, have undergone extensive renovation and display collections of furniture and decorative arts from the American and English Arts & Crafts Movements as well as contemporary furniture.

This program is FREE with RSVP to Members of the Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms.
