The Shaker Museum & Library
Mt. Lebanon, New York

The Shaker Museum and Library, presently located in Old Chatham, New York, completed a feasibility study for reusing the North Family and Second Meetinghouse of Mount Lebanon Shaker Village as the new home of the Museum and Library. As part of the feasibility study, Page Ayres Cowley Architects, LLC prepared a Historic Structures Report for the ten extant Shaker buildings and approximately 30 acres that make-up the North Family as well as the Second Meetinghouse. As the center of the new institution, the North Family Stone Barn ruin will be rehabilitated and reused as permanent and rotating gallery space, visitors center, library and collection storage. Page Ayres Cowley Architects, LLC, working with Robert Silman Associates, Engineers, has developed a program for conserving the remaining historic fabric including the rubble masonry walls, interior and exterior parging and internal silos.
