Guided Tour of Nakashima’s Home and 8 buildings on the grounds
Minguren Museum
Lunch at Login Inn in New Hope, PA

George Katsutoshi Nakashima (Japanese:中 島勝寿 Nakashima Katsutoshi, (May 24,
1905 – June 15, 1990) was an American woodworker, architect, and furniture maker
who was one of the leading innovators of 20th century furniture design and a father of
the American craft movement.

Join us for an inspirational tour of his home, as we visit 8 buildings, most of them
experimental structures he built. Amongst them are The Conoid Studio, The Reception
House and The Minguren Museum, home of the Nakashima Foundation for Peace. In
1984, George Nakashima had the opportunity to purchase the largest and finest walnut
log he had ever seen and sought to use the immense planks to their fullest potential.
He dreamed then that if Altars for Peace were made for each continent of the world, as
centers for meditation, prayer, and activities for peace, the world would be a better
place.

After our visit to this National Historic Landmark we will lunch at the Login Inn. There
will also be time to visit shops and sites in New Hope.
