Join NU Circle friends for a fun fall outing to Crabtree Farms in Lake Bluff on Wednesday, October 8 (www.crabtreefarm.org). Crab Tree Farm in Lake Bluff, Illinois, just north of Lake Forest, is an outstandingly elegant Arts and Crafts Farm completely restored by John Bryant. In addition there there is an Arts and Crafts home by Gustave Stickley (1858-1942) completed furnished in genuine Arts and Crafts syle. The grounds contain another cottage from 1900, also furnished, and the barns contain collections of art and photos of the Arts and Crafts Era. It is a genuine Arts and Crafts period site, and a two hour tour well worth seeing.We will carpool up to Crabtree Farms, leaving around 9:00 for a two-hour tour at 10:00, followed by lunch at a local restaurant in Lake Bluff. Cost of the tour is $10/person, plus the cost of lunch (approximately another $10). Friends are welcome. Please reserve a spot by calling Eleanor Prince at 847-251-4339
