Christ Church Cranbrook is rumored to be haunted, perhaps stemming from a book by Henry Scripps Booth, son of Cranbrook founder George Gough Booth. The 1963 book is called “Cranbrook Boasts a Ghost; or the Skeptic’s Tale.” It’s about a stonemason who disappeared during the building’s construction, having been trapped inside the walls. The Ghost of Cranbrook is said to haunt the church, and perhaps he invites some friends. On May 18, St. Dunstan’s Day Eve, rumor has it that a congregation of spirits fills the chapel, all ghostly folks who disappear as soon as someone turns on the lights.
