AAA Editor Notes
George Nakashima Woodworker Complex, 28 mi. e. on I-95 from Philadelphia, exit 51, at 1847 Aquetong Road, is the site of the home, workshop and studio of renowned Japanese-American woodworker, furniture maker and architect George Nakashima. During WWII, Nakashima was interned at the Minidoka Relocation Center in Hunt, Idaho. Upon his release, he went to Antonin Raymond’s farm in New Hope, where he continued his work in a studio and workshop there. Self-guiding tours of the showroom, the Conoid Studio and Finishing Room are open to the public for Saturday open houses. The complex was named a National Historic Landmark in April 2014.
