This illustrated lecture will explore a remarkable building from its construction in 1818 to its demolition in 1973. The Shakers built hundreds of buildings, each uniquely suited to its geography and function. While the village meetinghouse was revered as the architectural center of Shaker faith and practice, the family dwelling house was the building to which individuals felt most attached – their Shaker home. It was where they slept, ate, kept their clothing, and worshiped together as a family in daily religious exercises. The Mount Lebanon North Family Dwelling, often called simply “the North House,” was one such Shaker home. An interior room is preserved in the American Wing of The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

$50/person. Payment is NOT accepted at the door. All tickets must be obtained in advance of the event.
