On September 28, the Museum hosts a popular tour of the Crab Tree Farm Arts and Crafts Collection. The Arts and Crafts Collection is housed in five buildings on the property located at 982 Sheridan Road in Lake Bluff. The tour lasts approximately 1 1⁄2 hours.

Crab Tree Farm was built in 1910, after fire destroyed the original farm buildings. The buildings were designed and built, by Architect Solon Spencer Beman, as a model dairy farm for Grace Durand. Durand was a successful businesswoman who was trained in agricultural science and was well known for her modern methods of dairy farming. The farm buildings have undergone extensive renovation since Durand’s time and now house the finest collection of Arts and Crafts furnishings in the country. The collection includes furniture that is the work of Gustav Stickley, plus ceramics, textiles, paintings and other artwork by Stickley’s contemporaries.
