About South Union Shaker Village
This Shaker community was established by the Shakers in 1807 and closed in 1922. Now, it's not only a memory but a place to visit and learn firsthand about their old way of life. Some of the original buildings that have been restored house the museum of Shaker folklife and material culture, a gift shop, and overnight lodgings. The museum also hosts a variety of events such as holiday markets, Shake, Ride, and Roll Bike, or Farm to Table.
