Explore Cranbrook House

Cranbrook House was designed by Detroit architect Albert Kahn in 1908 for the founders of Cranbrook, George Gough Booth and Ellen Scripps Booth, and served as their family home for 40 years. The estate is now the centerpiece of the Cranbrook Educational Community campus, a National Historic Landmark.

Designed in the English Arts and Crafts-style, Cranbrook House is the oldest surviving manor home in metro Detroit. The Booths commissioned the finest artisans, craftsmen and studios of the period to furnish the house with handcrafted furniture, tapestries, tiles, stained and leaded glass, and other works of fine and decorative art. 

Explore Cranbrook House during guided tours offered to the public, with your group on a private tour, or during other special events throughout the year.

Cranbrook House & Gardens is a historic facility preserved and maintained as closely as possible to its original design. As such, there are certain natural and artificial surface conditions, such as grass, wood chips, stones, stairs, steep slopes and uneven terrain which can make walking and use of a wheelchair difficult. Assistance for persons using wheelchairs or walkers is recommended.
