Hancock Shaker Village is a landmark destination of 750 acres and 20 historic Shaker buildings. On the National Historic Register, it is the most comprehensively interpreted Shaker site in the world, and the oldest working farm in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts. The mission of Hancock Shaker Village is to bring the Shaker story to life and preserve it for future generations; to collect and preserve the property and artifacts that demonstrate the history, industry, life, and traditions of the Shakers and their achievements/contributions to the American way of life; to exhibit the collections of Shaker buildings, furnishings, libraries, and objects of art; to enable and conduct studies and research into Shaker and American community history; and to reflect on living a principled life and the values the Shakers embraced: integrity, racial and gender equality, pacifism, community, sustainability, responsible land stewardship, innovation, and simplicity.  Through multifaceted programming in art, music, food, and thought we share the Shaker story, and strive to ignite curiosity, expand imaginations, and inspire generations.

Establishment year: 1970
