White Water Shaker Village - Ohio

BIG shout out to Crosby Boy Scout Troop 293. A nice group of young men and their leaders came out on what started out as a very poor weather day to give us a hand. They helped us by cleaning bricks, cleaning the Meeting House and Dwelling, and picked up the grounds. This on a cold day that started out with 1.5" of snow on the ground.
If you get the chance, please help support these young men at their Annual Spaghetti Dinner. It will be held on Saturday, March 25th from 4 to 7:30 PM at the Crosby Senior/ Community Center.

Our Mission

To preserve, restore, and open the Shaker buildings and adjacent grounds known as the North Family of White Water Shaker Village; to collect and exhibit artifacts related to the site for the cultural enrichment of the public; to educate the public about this unique part of our nation's heritage.

We invite you to browse our website to learn more about this village – the former White Water Shaker Community (1824-1916) – and the legacy the Shakers left behind in southwestern Ohio.

More than twenty original Shaker buildings still stand, having been purchased by the Great Parks of Hamilton County (formerly Hamilton County Park District) from private owners in 1989-1991. While Great Parks has invested substantial funds in the acquisition and stabilization of the structures, much more needs to be done before a restored Shaker Village can be opened to the public. We are seeking your support to show that the public wants this historic Shaker village restored. In our vision are docent-led tours of these wonderful buildings, Shaker craft workshops,demonstrations and fairs, demonstration farm plots plowed by horses, a shop selling superb Shaker-style crafts and books, and, above all, your opportunity to walk in this peaceful farm setting and reflect on the story of the Believers for whom this was once home.
