Designed by Albert Kahn and built in 1908, Cranbrook House is an Arts & Crafts inspired English Tudor style manor home. At over 100 years old, it is the oldest manor home in the metro-Detroit area. For the better part of its first century, the estate served as the family home of Cranbrook founders, George and Ellen Booth, and their five children (James, Grace, Warren, Henry and Florence); the Booths entertained family and friends, and conducted business here.
Today, Cranbrook House and Gardens is part of the Cranbrook Educational Community, a National Historic Landmark. Guided tours of the first floor are available throughout the year.
