The Shaker Historical Society has many collections that it researches, documents, preserves, and shares with the public. Most objects relate to the Shakers of North Union—their clothing, inventions, and tools—but there is a growing collection related to Shaker Village and the development of Shaker Heights as a community.


We are actively collecting, and welcome donations that would help us tell the Shaker Heights story! Please contact for more details.
