Four Centuries In A Weekend @ Crane-Phillips House

The Cranford Historical Society’s Crane-Phillips House Museum at 124 North Union Avenue will once again participate in Union County’s Annual “Four Centuries in a Weekend.”  The museum will be open on Saturday, October 19th from 10:00am to 5:00pm and on Sunday, October 20th from 12:00pm to 5:00pm.  This year’s theme is “Saving The Past and Moving Forward to Technology of the Present.”

The Crane-Phillips House Museum, a Victorian Cottage, modest home of the 1870’s, shows what life was like without plumbing or electricity.  During Four Centuries in a Weekend, visitors will see how implements in the kitchen and throughout the house have evolved through technology and pictures will be at each implement showing the technology of today.  All of the inventions in the past are hands on to all who would like to try them to see what it was like to do household chores, etc.  Also, Trustees and Volunteers will be on hand to give a tour of each room in the unique living museum which is on the National and State Registry.

Materials for the weekend tour are available from the Union County Division of Cultural and Heritage Affairs Office and will be at all sites.  The materials include a booklet featuring photos and info about each site with a map showing the locations.  For more info, please call the Union County Division of Cultural and Heritage Affairs at 908-558-2550 or visit http://ucnj.org/parks-recreation/cultural-heritage-affairs/historic-sites-map/
