Shaker Historical Society

We inspire people to engage in and celebrate the Shaker Heights story and its impact on the region… past, present, and future.


COVID-19 Announcement


Out of care for the health of our visitors, volunteers, staff, and community at large, The Shaker Historical Society will close indefinitely to the public effective Saturday, March 14, 2020.


As a part of the Ohio History Connection site system, we will reopen according to their direction and State guidelines.


We have made the difficult decision to cancel Gracious Gardens 2020 and Shaker Dig 2020 for the safety of our visitors, volunteers, and staff. We are busy planning new exhibits, events, and programs tentatively scheduled for July and August.


Updates will be provided on our website, Instagram page, and Facebook page. For information on COVID-19, please visit the Ohio Department of Health's website.
