Our founders first met in 2001 to discuss what we could do to save this gem of Ohio's Shaker heritage. Since that meeting, we have grown to about 150 members, and in 2007 took control of the North Family's eight acres and eleven historic buildings through a lease from the Great Parks of Hamilton County. 

We are an Ohio non-profit corporation with IRS 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status. 


White Water is one of 24 communal villages founded, in the United States, between 1787 and 1824 by the United Society of Believers in Christ's Second Appearing, generally called "Shakers." It is the only one of four Ohio Shaker villages retaining most of its original buildings in their original settings and features the only standing brick meeting house in the country.

This is reasonably close to me, though I used to live a lot closer.  One of the principals in the restoration was a former neighbor of mine and his daughter baby-sat for us.   I visited there a long time ago, but it had quite a ways to go.

There was also another Shaker community now closer to me (Lebanon, OH)
