Roycroft Campus, East Aurora, NY Photos

As Elbert Hubbard's Roycroft printing business expanded into other Arts & Crafts enterprises, Hubbard added buildings for its various needs. Today, the Powerhouse operates as a Visitor Center museum for the print shop, furniture shop, copper shop, a Chapel (in its original meaning = a place for creators of manuscripts). Tours are given of the campus and the connected Roycroft Inn. Campus buildings are now used museums, shops, creative spaces for artists and similar functions.
