The SHS will soon be carrying reprints of Distinguished Homes of Shaker Heights: An Architectural Overview by Richard N. Campen in the Spirit Tree Gift Shop! Distinguished Homes of Shaker Heights is an architectural history of the celebrated suburban community of Shaker Heights, Ohio. Distinguished Homes of Shaker Heights chronicles the founding of the community by the Van Sweringen brothers and their establishment of rail Rapid Transit to the central city, and profiles the principal contributing architects. Campen has included over 245 full-color photographs with information regarding the building date, the designing architect, a stylistic designation, and in most instances the original owner and the building cost.
Published in 1992, this book has been out of print for several years and will be reprinted for a limited time only. Books will be on sale for $43 and will be available for pick-up in late January.
