Shaker Historical Museum

The Shaker Museum is housed in a local mansion overlooking Upper Shaker Lake. The museum exhibits a large collection of Shaker objects. Many are from North Union, a Shaker colony founded in 1822 and located in what is now the cith of Shaker Heights. The museum also has a library with collections from both the 19th-century Shakers and 20th-century Shaker Heights.
By 1850 North Union was a prosperous community of 200. At first it sold produce and handmade furniture to nearby communities. Cleveland's mass production industries eventually put them out of business. The colony disbanded in 1889. 
No architectural remnants of North Union Colony remain. The Shaker's legacy of simplicity of life style and concepts of equality, freedom, and social justice remain.
