Hands To Work, Hearts To God – The Meetinghouse
Meet the Shakers, whose quest for perfection was expressed in many ways including the way they organized and ruled themselves and the creation of magnificent furniture and architecture. Come to the place they established as their 18th century headquarters. Take a walk up to the Meetinghouse, where the Shakers held public services on Sundays. Then, on the walk back to the North Family, learn about persecution Shaker founder Ann Lee faced in the New Lebanon community during a 1783 visit.
NOTE: Please dress for walking in woods and fields with heavy shoes or boots and a hat. Bring sunscreen and bug repellent. Other outdoor programs should be rechecked that this is in place
