The Crane family stands as a pillar of Montclair's history, having etched their name into the very fabric of the town from its earliest days. As pioneers, Azariah Crane and his family settled in what was then known as Cranetown in 1694. This settlement, which blossomed at the crossroads of Orange Road and Myrtle Avenue, was the seed from which modern Montclair grew. Their efforts, particularly those of descendant Israel Crane, propelled the community forward with the establishment of a general store and the crucial Newark-Pompton Turnpike, fostering economic vitality and connecting Montclair to the broader region.
