​Welcome to historic Shaker Square

​Shaker Square will soon celebrate its 90th birthday. From its original conception by the Van Sweringen brothers to today, Shaker Square has served the community around the Square as a place where intersections occur – commercial intersections, transportation intersections, social intersections, and cultural intersections.

Shaker Square’s Unique Story

Throughout Shaker Square’s long history, the Square has served as the anchor, the town center for urbane and diverse neighborhoods that surround the Square. Not only is Shaker Square listed on the National Register of Historic Places, but the Shaker Square Historic District became a Shaker Heights Landmark in 1980.
