Explore 200 years of Black history in Montclair and New Jersey through rare first-hand accounts, primary and secondary source documents at the Crane House & Historic YWCA. Artifacts include a bill of sale for an enslaved person in the household, an 1800s newspaper, census data, personal letters, oral histories, and mid-century Jet and Ebony magazines. These artifacts provide a springboard for discussion about race both in the past and in the present-day.
Tours begin at 12:00pm, 1:00pm, and 2:00pm at the little red Nathaniel Crane House & Visitor Center located at the back of the parking lot. No reservations needed.
