  • Join Shaker Museum | Mount Lebanon to celebrate the start of our summer season, and the opening of "Break Every Yoke: Shakers, gender equality, and women's suffrage." We'll mark the occasion at 6PM with a free picnic on the lawn at the North Family. All are welcome. The exhibition traces the evolution of Shaker gender relations, from the earliest prophecies of Mother Lee to the struggles of Shakers in the fight for universal suffrage.
