Statement of Significance (as of designation - February 24, 1986):
An Arts and Crafts movement community founded by Elbert Hubbard in 1895 as an artistic revolt against the mass production of applied arts. The theory was that in its medieval craft guild setting, craftsmen could live and work, making beautiful objects by hand. They produced fine hand-painted and -bound books, paintings, carvings, metalwork, and ceramics.

Condition:
The buildings of Roycroft are now in multiple private ownership.
