Montclair Historical Society's Israel Crane House -- This Federal style house was built in 1796 by Israel Crane, a direct descendent of the founding family of Montclair. The restored Israel Crane House features period furnishings, decorative arts, gardens, a 19th century schoolroom on the third floor, and an Early American Kitchen, where cooking demonstrations are given such as open hearth cooking and bee hive oven baking.
The ten rooms of Crane House include a painted bedroom furniture set owned by Paul Revere IV, dated 1816; ceramics, glassware, and silverware; paintings and an 1827 harp.
