Gustav Stickley House

The Gustav Stickley House is a house built in 1900 in Syracuse, New York which is regarded as the first American Craftsman house for its interior design. In 1903, after a fire, its interior was renovated by Gustav Stickley who is known for his furniture and other contributions in the American American Craftsman movement.

Views of the interior and plans were published in 1903 in The Craftsman, a magazine that Stickley founded in 1901. A reprint of the article appears in the NRHP nomination document.

Stickley lived in the house during 1900-1905, and the third floor was revised to serve as an apartment for him in the 1920s.

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.

On the exterior, it does not appear more remarkable than many other houses on the block and in the greater neighborhood, which covers a hillside leading up to Syracuse University.
