Take a look back into the ways of a traditional Shaker society in this well-preserved village. Shakers embraced a life of celibacy, hard work and confession as the means to redemption, and the "Shaking Quakers’" unique style of worship and communal lifestyle set them apart from traditional society of the time. Their extraordinary craftsmanship and ingenuity remain as legacies to this day.
