Crane House & Historic YWCA

In 1965, the Israel Crane House was saved by the Montclair Historical Society from demolition and later moved to its current location in Essex.  It has been restored as a house museum to tell the story of its earliest occupants and historic preservation.  Through a short introduction and tour of the Crane House and Historic YWCA, you will have an opportunity to learn how early preservationists planned and restored this historic site.
