Hi Susan, I've always been intrigued with the Shakers because of their way of living. I love visiting the Hancock Shaker Village in Pittsfield, MA. The buildings and gardens are wonderful - I especially like The Round Stone Barn.
Thanks for such a detailed entry about The Shakers!


I stumbled upon this site as I was in the process of doing some online research. The simple lines in Shaker furniture have recently attracted me.

We have also been to Canterbury Shaker Village. It is in New Hampshire not CT. Looking forward to that Shaker mystery:-)

I know nothing about the religeous beliefs of the Shakers but at least they semm to be in tune with mother earth. Whatever became of them?
