Shaker Historical Society Research Request
All research requests are processed on a first-come, first-served basis and are time-dependent on staff availability. 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, credit cards, and PayPal.
• SHS members and museum personnel receive a 50% discount.
