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.

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.
