The construction and outfitting of a climate-controlled collections storage facility in the Shaker Museum’s new museum building.

Shaker Museum | Mount Lebanon seeks an Infrastructure and Capacity Building Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to construct and outfit a climate-controlled collections storage facility in its new museum building. After being closed to the public for more than ten years, the Shaker Museum has purchased outright a 19th century industrial building in Chatham, NY and is in the process of renovating it into a new facility essential to the Museum’s future and its ability to deliver humanities programming to a demonstrated local, national, and international audience. The new building will allow the Museum to share its unparalleled collection with the public and tell the complete story of the Shakers, including their material culture as seen through furniture, costume, archives, and photographs; their social legacy of communalism, inclusion, and pacifism; and their technological innovations in manufacturing, architecture, agriculture, and engineering.
