Native American artifacts, such as arrowheads and stone axes, can be seen at the Crane-Phillips House Living Museum. It's a small Victorian cottage that shows what life was like in the late 19th century. Costumed docents give tours of the home, including "Kate's room," which has a dollhouse and children's outfits from the Cranford Historical Society's antique clothing collection—it's our daughters' favorite part.
