|The Byrdcliffe Colony|
The Byrdcliffe Colony, also called the Byrdliffe Arts Colony or
Byrdcliffe Historic District, was founded in 1902 near Woodstock,
New York by Jane Byrd McCall and Ralph Radcliffe Whitehead
and colleagues, Bolton Brown (artist) and Hervey White (writer).
It is the oldest operating Arts and Crafts Colony in America.
The Arts and Crafts Movement arose in the late nineteenth century
in reaction to the dehumanizing monotony and standardization of
industrial production. Byrdcliffe was created as an experiment in
utopian living inspired by the arts and crafts movement.
