Shaker Historical Society

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


If you would like to leave a legacy to the Shaker Historical Society in your will, we can help you do just that! Some members and friends have left stocks and annuities in their wills, while others have stated in lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to us. We appreciate any donation and will be happy to meet with you to discuss any legacies or possible named funds.

Our collection policy allows us to accept items that are NOT duplicates, add to our ability to tell the Shaker Heights story, and are in good condition that we can maintain. If you have something that helps us tell a story or that we can sell to raise money for our collection, we would like to hear from you! 



We value every penny we receive to help us carry out our mission to inspire people to engage in and celebrate the Shaker Heights story and its impact on the region... past, present and future.
