The "first Craftsman" house

For those in the NY/NJ/PA area, I want to recommend a trip to the "Craftsman Farm" in Morris Plains, NJ. This was the home and farm of Gustav Stickley.
The tour lasts about 45 minutes and probably the best $6 you'll spend all year. The highlights are seeing the ORIGINAL pieces of furniture that are now widely copied.
A great place to visit if you're a woodworker. One of the things our docent did was to pull out a box of types of joints used in the furniture. Try to identify them before reading the legends.
Also, have them point out the dovetails in the ceiling moldings in the upstairs bedrooms.
