Of the 3 top historical sights in East Aurora this is the most authentic. You feel like you've stepped back in time. It hasn't been altered.

For American arts and crafts lovers, this is a must see, along with Stickley's Craftsman Farm in NJ. They both give a real sense of not only the philosophy of the period, but also the tangible results.

This was the perfect complement to our stay at the Roycroft Inn. The staff are very helpful and offer a unique perspective of the work of Elbert Hubbard and the Roycrofters. This is a must for Arts & Crafts fans!
