Built by local businessman Israel Crane, this space was his family's home for over 100 years. In 1920, African American women in the community purchased the home as headquarters for a YWCA, a segregated space. By 1965, the YWCA desperately needed a new building. Local preservationists moved the house to its present location and turned it into a historic house museum. Today, we tell the stories of the three generations of Cranes, the people (both enslaved and immigrants) who worked for them, the women and girls of the YWCA, and the early preservationists who fought to save this piece of Montclair's history. A fully-functional hearth kitchen is also available for rent. Please DM for more information of this space.
