Join MCHS and Passaic River Coalition for a Turning Leaves Tour and Tea!

Attendees will also explore the history of the gentleman’s farm, first built in 1853, and the Crane family that called it home for four generations.
Across town, guests can enjoy a sweet and savory afternoon tea at Willow Hall, built for industrialist George Vail in 1848.
