An official Path Through History Site! Over 120 years ago, in a small workroom in Binghamton, the Stickley brothers began handcrafting wooden chairs. Today, Stickley is well known for its Mission Style work, an outgrowth of the Arts & Crafts movement of the late 19th century. The Stickley Museum is located in the original L. & J. G. Stickley furniture factory, in use by the company from 1900 to 1985. Its 8,000 square-foot exhibit of furniture and design history spans over 100 years, including Mission and Colonial styles.
