Shaker Village is a wonderful step back into the past, The village is beautifully restored and, surprisingly, open 365 days a year. Special presentations about things like Shaker music are expertly presented, informative, and entertaining. We've been impressed with the level of expertise of all the presenters. The craftspeople clearly love what they are doing and if you're lucky enough to be there when there are few visitors, you may even get a real hands-on experience turning wood or making brooms. On a New Year's visit, we had a terrific lunch--slightly pricey but it included entry to the exhibits. We wish we had done an earlier lunch because the village closes relatively early. and I highly recommend the drive from Lexington; just past the small town of Wilmore, you are on a winding two-lane road with steep rock walls leading directly to the village--this has quickly become one of my favorite drives and destinations with visiting guests in our new home state.
