Stories and Spirits at the Shaker Cemetery

October 11 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Far from seeing the spirit world as threatening, the Shakers fully embraced visions, dreams, and communication with the spirits.

Don’t be fooled by the modest gravestones in this cemetery established in 1785 – they mark the resting places of some of the most innovative, creative, and radical figures of the 18th and 19th century. This special October tour series led by Shaker Heritage staff will explore remarkable stories of the Shakers and their unique religious and social movement, which is recognized as the most successful communal society in the US.

$5 SHS Member

$10 General Admission

The tours are an hour long. In case of rain, the talk will be held at the Shaker Heritage Barn.
