Enjoy a tour with lunch in the elegant and enchanted setting of Cranbrook House. The historic 1908 English-Tudor estate was designed by Albert Kahn in the Arts and Crafts-style for the founders of Cranbrook, George Gough Booth and Ellen Scripps Booth. Docents will introduce you to the Booth story as they highlight beautiful furnishings, tapestries, and paintings by world-class artists along the way.
The Oak Room
Celebrating its centennial in 1919, the Oak Room features hand-carved oak paneling completed under the direction of woodcarver, John Kirchmayer. Cartouches complement the paneling and commemorate important Booth and Cranbrook-related events.
The Library is the centerpiece of George Booth's devotion to the Arts and Crafts movement. Added in 1918, this room boasts hand-carved walls, hand-woven tapestries, hand-made furniture, and many hand-bound books in its collection of over 6,000 titles!
The Dining Room
During your tour of this room, you'll hear a family story that may sound like a tall tale, and see the Booth's dining table that was completed by Albert Kahn from George Booth's design, dinnerware, lighting by Caldwell & Company, a portrait by a famous painter, and more.
