The Landmarks Preservation Program is dedicated to the Preservation of sites, structures and other significant features of Cranbrook's natural and historical heritage. Included in the program are The Baker Home, built in 1887 as a dwelling for the founder of Cranbrook, Colonel James A. Baker. Many of these landmarks are listed on the Cranbrook Tour Map (2011).
The Centennial Heritage Trees Program was begun in 1989 along the Museum Development Zone. Working with the City, the Provincial Government and local groups, landscaping along the highway through Cranbrook continues to enhance the general appearance of the community..
