We are pleased to announce that the Craftsman Weekend Saturday Evening Reception will be and held at the beautifully restored James Allen Freeman House. Recently added to the National Register of Historic Places, this home is an Arts and Crafts gem and will be open for the first time to the public exclusively for our guests! Located in the same neighborhood as the famed Greene & Greene designed Blacker House, this Arthur and Alfred Heineman-designed house, completed in 1913, has influences of the English Arts and Crafts Movement throughout.

One of the most striking features of this home is the restored wave-patterned wood-shingle roof, which wraps over the eaves to mimic the look of an English Cotswold cottage thatched roof. Additional influences of the English Arts and Crafts Movement include the flat stucco walls with pseudo-half-timbering, and beautiful leaded glass casement windows. The house features a variety of interior and exterior examples of tiles by famed tile maker Ernest Batchelder, and art glass fabricated by the renowned Judson Studios. The interior of the house has multiple fireplaces, a grand 2nd floor gallery/hallway, coved ceilings accentuated with corbels and beams, beautiful built-ins and woodwork throughout.

This home is a work of art, and a beautiful example of design and craftsmanship. The reception will include a tour of this magnificent house and a catered wine and hors d’oeuvres gathering in the exquisitely landscaped garden.
