Our Littlest Historians
Pre-K to Kindergarten

For many of our littlest visitors, this is often their first introduction to history. We want it to be fun. Storytime, a scavenger hunt, a fireside chat and, of course, a visit to the chickens.  Approximately 1 hour in length.

Life In Early New Jersey

Grades 1 through 4

Students experience the sights, sounds, and smells of early American life. We begin with an introduction to the history of our area, during which students form a human timeline, stretching back 200 years. They take an interactive, age-appropriate tour of the Crane House and visit a 1796 kitchen with (weather permitting) a fire burning in the hearth. Students discover how different a 19th century school was like compared to their own and end their visit in the farm.

Discovering Black History through Primary and Secondary Sources

Grades 7 through 12

This two-hour program uses primary and secondary documents spanning 200 years of the Black experience in Montclair and New Jersey. Beginning with the bill of sale of an enslaved person in the household, to the impact of the first railroad in Montclair and the Great Migration, and first-hand accounts of women from the segregated YWCA, this program enables students to understand the value and use of research materials and opens the doors to dialogue.
