About Cranbrook House
Cranbrook House is the former family home of George Gough Booth and Ellen Scripps Booth, the philanthropists who founded Cranbrook Educational Community, a National Historic Landmark. The 1908 English Tudor house was designed by renowned Detroit architect Albert Kahn in the Arts and Crafts style. The home is now the oldest surviving Tudoresque manor in metro Detroit open for public tours.
Tours are offered by Cranbrook House & Gardens Auxiliary volunteers who have completed an extensive docent training program.
