CRANBROOK is a concept and a state of mind. Located in the tony northern suburb of Bloomfield Hills, the progressive pre-K to 12 grade college prep academy+art museum+grounds was created on excess acreage of the George Booth ( Detroit News publisher's) estate. In 2004 it celebrates a century of providing arts and education to the children of the international jetset. Eliel Saarinen was commissioned to design here - Carl Milles came from Sweden to create garden sculpture enhancements. The Museum and reflecting pools are worth a daytrip.

Cranbrook is located at 39221 Woodward Ave., Bloomfield Hills.
