Hancock Shaker Village

Many woodworkers admire the clean, simple lines of Shaker style furniture. The forms are classic, and are still reproduced even though it has been a century or more since the originals were made.

So, if you are big fan of Shaker Furniture, you should probably go to a Shaker Village to get a better idea of how members of this religious sect lived, worked and interacted with their craft. Hancock Shaker Village is a lovingly preserved Shaker settlement where you can see, admire and immerse yourself in the Shaker lifestyle.
