GUIDED HOUSE TOUR: THE ROOTS OF HISTORIC PRESERVATION
110 Orange Road, Montclair, NJ 07042. 12:00PM, 1:00PM, 2:00PM. In 1965, when the Crane House and Historic YWCA was saved from demolition, moved, and restored to tell the story of its earliest occupants, historic preservation was in its infancy and there were no standards to guide these preservationists. Through a short introduction and tour of the Crane House and Historic YWCA, students discover the Roots of Historic Preservation, putting in context some of the decisions made by the early preservationists who restored the Crane House in the 1960s.
Tours begin at 12:00 pm, 1:00 pm, and 2:00 pm at the little red Nathaniel Crane House & Visitor Center located at the back of the parking lot. No reservations required.
Admission is $12/adult; $10/student/senior with ID; $8/child; under 2 free. MHC members are free! For more info: firstname.lastname@example.org, 973-744-1796. Free.
