“Great Local Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2012

The History Museum has the complete history of the Shakers in this area. Ask if Glendower is open, this is their 1840 house on the hill just a short walk from the Museum

“Great Shaker Exhibit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2012

This is probably one of the best Shaker museum exhibits outside of New England. The "western" Shakers in Ohio and Kentucky came along well after the New England were established and since they had fewer numbers, they died out early in the 20th century. The museum has a very nice collection of Shaker items as well as other local artifacts. If you are into Shaker visit the museum and the Golden Lamb restaurant across the street. The Lamb also has a nice collection of Shaker antiques. For the utimate Shaker experience drive about three hours south to the restored Shaker village in Pleasent Hill, KY. Have dinner there and stay the night in one of their historic buildings. It's a great experience!
