Earlier Bloomfield Trolley




Our good neighbor to the west

(Montclair was formerly West Bloomfield)

"Cranetown "by popular designation became after 1812, West Bloomfield, but was incorporated as Montclair in 1868. The incorporation took away another third of the original Bloomfield, on its western side.

A fine art museum is located in Montclair showing, among other items works by Montclair artist, George Inness

Samples here, but the real, up close are so much more interesting.
