Shaker Historical Society Research Request
All research requests are processed on a first-come, first-served basis and are time dependent on staff availability. Onsite research in the Shaker Historical Society's library and archives is free but must be scheduled in advance. Requests for SHS staff to complete research are subject to fees as outlined below. Once you submit this form, a staff member will contact you to confirm your request and to give you an estimated time frame.
  • Applicants will be notified after the first free 15 minutes of staff research to assess the acquired research and determine if additional time is needed.
  • If additional time is needed, there is a nonrefundable $25.00 deposit that covers the first hour of research. Additional research is $25.00 an hour. Our fees help to defray the costs of maintenance, care of materials, and staff time.
  • Staff will not begin research until the nonrefundable deposit is submitted. All remaining research fees must be paid upon completion of research. We accept cash, checks, and credit cards.
  • SHS members receive a 10-40% discount depending on membership level, and museum personnel receive a 50% discount.
