The Shakers were drawn to this site for its rich natural resources—fertile land, plentiful water sources and strong limestone. Today, The Preserve conserves and shares native prairies, woodlands, watersheds, fields, canebrakes and diverse wildlife—all perfectly framed by miles of hand-laid rock walls. Go on a new adventure every day as you crisscross 3,000 acres of streams, forests and wide open spaces.
Unleash your trailblazing spirit as you search for critters in the creek, spark a child’s interest in nature and even find a little peace of mind. But don’t stop there—continue your exploration in The Historic Centre and The Farm!
