    The Cranbrook institutions serve as an educational, research, and public museum complex in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Named as a National Historic Landmark, it was founded in the early 20th century by newspaper mogul George Gough Booth. It grew in size and content to include three Cranbrook Schools, the Cranbrook Academy of Art and Art Museum, Cranbrook Institute of Science, and Cranbrook House and Gardens. The founders also constructed Christ Church Cranbrook to serve as a focal point serving the educational complex and its surrounding community; the church subsequently became a separate entity under the aegis of the Episcopal Diocese of Michigan. The sprawling 319-acre campus began as a 174-acre farm, purchased in 1904, and the organization takes its name from Cranbrook, England, the birthplace of the founder's father.
