Built in 1908 by Albert Kahn, the Cranbrook House and Gardens is the centerpiece of Cranbrook Educational Community?s campus. It was constructed for the community?s founders, George Gough Booth and Ellen Scripps Booth, in the English Arts and Crafts Movement style of architecture.

The gardens, however, was designed by George Booth himself. It included a series of various gardens like wildflower, herb, sunken, Oriental, and bog. It also has formal gardens, fountains, sculptures, specimen trees and a lake in its 40-acre area.

The Cranbrook House and Gardens are open to visitors during the months of May through October. However, tours only include the gardens and the ten rooms of the first floor of the house, as the upper stories of the building are used as offices.
