Cranbrook Gardens

George and Ellen Booth founded Cranbrook Educational Community on the grounds of their estate north of Detroit. Mr. Booth named the estate after his ancestral home, Cranbrook, Kent, England. The campus, which is a National Historic Landmark, includes extensive formal gardens that are open to the public.

 

The tiles were made by Mary Chase Stratton, founder of Pewabic Pottery.
