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.


Discover how Shaker Heights residents have procured their daily bread throughout the 20th century to the present. Learn about the national food chain that started here, and meet the glamorous celebrities who dined at Gruber's in the 1950s. This exhibit charts the trends for dining out or dining in and looks ahead to how residents will put dinner on the table into the future.
