Meet the men, women and children who called this place home for over 100 years. These every day Kentuckians designed architectural marvels, harvested the fruits of the earth, and built a village grounded in the principles of community, ingenuity and sustainability. The lessons learned upon this land have resonated through generations. Commitment to family, equality and sacrifice; a resourceful and inventive spirit; thoughtful stewardship and cultivation of the land.
These powerful Shaker gifts are shared throughout the Village today. Come and learn what this place meant to them and what it can mean to you.
We invite visitors to explore, dine and stay the night, the weekend or the week at this treasured Kentucky landmark.
