The community has a modern hospital, nursing home, a community swimming pool, a county museum, numerous parks and churches and a public library. In addition, there are several restaurants and local shopping. Crane offers the security of a small town with friendly people, and the attractions of a metropolitan area only minutes away. A mixture of modern and traditional, Crane keeps the historical aspect but plans for updates suited to the needs of the community.
