This Juneteenth, the Shaker Historical Society is celebrating the work of the African American Quilt and Doll Guild and commemorating Juneteenth with a quilt show in the Jack & Linda Lissauer Gallery.
The African American Quilt and Doll Guild’s philosophy is to share their work, ideas, and talents in a comfortable and caring atmosphere; to explore their African-American heritage with respect to the textile arts; and to teach and inspire each other. This Juneteenth, the Shaker Historical Society is celebrating their work and commemorating Juneteenth with a quilt show in the Jack & Linda Lissauer Gallery. Learn more about these artists and the meaning behind their quilts through related programming throughout the summer.
Parking is available in the lot behind the museum. Cyclists may park their bikes at racks near the main entrance. Drivers may park facing the garage.

An ADA ramp and designated handicapped parking spot are located behind the museum.
Please note our historic building is not entirely ADA accessible and there is no ADA bathroom. Most of our exhibits and events are on the main floor of the house, which can be accessed via the ADA ramp at the back of the museum, but there is no lift or elevator to access the second floor. All rooms on the first floor are on the same level except a very small step down to access the Spirit Tree Gift Shop, which was formerly the sun porch. For those with limited mobility who wish to access the second floor, there are thirteen steps up to the landing and then another five steps up to the second floor galleries.
