Rediscover the Roycroft Campus
Roycroft Campus in East Aurora, NY is the best preserved and most complete complex of buildings remaining in the United States of the "guilds" that evolved as centers of craftsmanship and philosophy during the late 19th century. The Campus, designated a National Historic Landmark district (NHL) in 1986, contains nine of the original 14 structures including the Inn, the Chapel, the Print Shop, the Furniture Shop, and the Copper Shop. So come visit and discover the rebirth of the Roycroft Campus as if Elbert Hubbard and the Roycrofters never left.

The snow will be flying soon, so what better way to spend some Fall days, then on the Roycroft Campus working with nature. Two classes in November, taught by Naturalist Mary Jo Graham, will do just that. Sunday, November 16th will find us examining Native American Plant Wisdom. On Thursday, November 20th, start the holiday season by making Herbal Crafts. What better gift to give, but a healthy one made by your own hands.
