Self-Guided Tours: See a New Side of Shaker
Experience more of Shaker Heights this fall with a self-guided tour – many from the archives of the City’s Planning Department
and the Landmark Commission – now available at shakeronline.com/city-tours.
Ten tours feature some of Cleveland’s most prominent 20th Century architects, who helped develop Shaker Heights in the
1900s, including Bloodgate Tuttle and Harry Shupe. There are also greatest hits-style tours of Shaker’s most famous buildings and a
family-friendly scavenger hunt of the historic Warrensville West Cemetery, which was created with the help of the Shaker Historical
Society and the Shaker Heights Public Library. There are tours designed for walking, bicycling, and driving.
You’ll also find tours from ClevelandHistorical.org, including the City’s historic Moreland neighborhood and another featuring
the North Union Shakers, the religious sect that settled here in the early 1800s and for which Shaker Heights is named.
Be sure to check out the Bike Shaker 2020: Ride Through History tour, which is also available at shakeronline.com/city-tours.
The bike tour was created through a partnership between the Shaker Historical Society, the City’s Human Relations Task Force, the
Shaker Heights Development Corporation, and the Shaker Heights Public Library. The tour and optional scavenger hunt are a fun
way to learn more about the history of Shaker Heights, while exploring the community from atop two wheels.
