Historic Site · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
The Roycroft Campus is one of the original centers of craftsmanship and philosophy that evolved in 20th century America. Founded by Elbert Hubbard in 1897, the Roycroft began as a print shop, producing finely hand-crafted books modeled after William Morris' Kelmscott Press in England. The Roycrofters would later expand their focus to include other decorative arts, such as furniture and metalwork, and become the vanguard of the unique American Arts & Crafts style.

The Roycroft Campus Corporation is a non-profit organization operating to support the preservation and restoration of the National Historic Landmark Roycroft Campus.

  • Enjoy a few hours touring the campus and shops . Wide variety to wander through. If still have time grad lunch at the Roycroft Inn and try for the porch if it's a nice day...Call for a reservation!  more »
  • Beautiful even outside; and a must-see for arts-and-crafts style or history buffs. Had never heard of it. Glad I have now.  more »
  • We did the in-depth tour and it was fabulous! The docent, Cynthia, was so knowledgeable about the history and could answer every question we came up with. Really recommend the tour to get the whole picture of who Elbert Hubbard was and the community that came together around him.
  • What a great craft centre. It was a privilege to see the beginnings of the Arts and Crafts movement. We wanted to take absolutely everything home.
