Originally founded in 1965 to save the Israel Crane House, the Montclair Historical Society (MHS) is dedicated to promoting, preserving, and appreciating the local history of Montclair. The MHS consists of two important historic sites, namely the Israel Crane House, a Federal Revival style landmark home built by a local entrepreneur in 1796, and the 1818-built Nathaniel Crane House.
Together, the two Crane Houses are open to the public as historic museum houses that showcase the history of the buildings and the surrounding town and provide space for educational workshops, lectures, and classes for the public and students alike. The society also owns Charles S. Schultz House on North Mountain Avenue known as Evergreens. Built in 1896, the Clark House is home to an excellent research library that serves as a valuable resource for scholars, historians, and local teachers.
