NEW STAFF! //shakerhistoricalsociety.org/blog-/new-staff Hi Folks

 

Sorry for the delay in posting news. Our former Office Manager left in April, and we have since eliminated that position. We now have a Marketing Coordinator, KATE WALKER, an Office Manager, RICK SMITH, and a Docent, ANNE MARIE FALTISCO to help our hard working director and trustees. During the summer we were so fortunate that Elizabeth Hoag, Cleveland Institute of Art lecturer helped us for several weeks. Now, she and our interns are back at school. Please bear with us as our newly hired staff comes up to speed.

For Your Sweet Tooth! //shakerhistoricalsociety.org/blog-/here-s-something-for-your-sweet-tooth

While researching how Shaker Heights residents procured their daily bread for the exhibit Shaker Eats!, we looked at all sorts of material. We came across this recipe book in the Library of Congress. It's from 1875, and we thought it was fun. So, be sure to visit Shaker Eats! For now... here's something for your sweet tooth. https://archive.org/details/howtomakecandy00hart
