Statement of Significance (as of designation - June 29, 1989):
Cranbrook is one of the most important groups of educational and architectural structures in America, a summary of the first half of the 20th century in the form of a group of buildings. This enclave in Bloomfield Hills, 25 miles from Detroit, was one of the idealist institutions meant to combat shoddy machine-age goods--from the making of beautiful objects to the creation of an architectural setting with details of the finest quality.

Condition:
There are no new threats to the NHL.

The owners are committed to preserving the campus. $10s of millions of dollars in restorarion has been done to many of the historic buildings.
