  • The Booth Legacy


    The history of Cranbrook Schools and the Cranbrook Educational Community is rich and extensive, tracing its roots back to the 1800s and the auspicious marriage of Ellen Scripps to George Booth. The Booths went on to become the founders of Cranbrook, the visionaries who dreamed these institutions into being and who believed they should build something lasting and valuable with their lives and resources.

    George and Ellen Booth bought the land that would become Cranbrook in 1904 and began to improve it for use as a vacation spot and potential home site. In 1908, they moved into their new home, Cranbrook House, designed by Detroit architect Albert Kahn. The Booths then began to look toward the future, hoping that the property could assume a higher service of some public nature.
