MONTCLAIR, NJ - The public is invited to take a tour of Montclair's many historic houses on Sunday, June 18 from 1 to 4 pm.
Step back in time and get to know ALL of the Montclair History Center’s historic houses in one afternoon! Discover the people whose “many voices” and life stories shaped our community, and travel through the ages with the Crane House and Historic YWCA. Hear about the evolution of our young country from New Jersey’s point of view, and learn of a unique story set during a time when the nation was embroiled in the Civil Rights.
Visit our community farm to learn more about our agricultural past, and don’t forget to say hello to our happy brood of chickens! Your visit then continues to the elegant Shultz House, an amazing, fully-intact time capsule that takes you away to life in the early 20th century.
A home chock full of original character, visitors can linger in a classic library full of vintage science instruments, admire Delft handiwork imported from the Netherlands, and marvel at the beautifully crafted woodwork.
Tours of the Crane House & Historic YWCA are on the hour, last tour at 3 pm. Tours of the Shultz House are on the half hour, last tour 3:30 pm. Admission is $6/adult; $5/student/senior with ID; $4/child; under 2 free, good for both sites. Member get in free! 30 North Mountain Avenue and 110 Orange Road, Montclair. www.montclairhistory.org.
