Hancock Shaker Village

Known for its unique round stone barn, this living history museum re-creates one of the last innovative farming communities founded by members of the Shaker faith, people who believed in equality and a spare beauty of design.

At Hancock, visitors can tour the buildings, farm and gardens, meet baby animals in the spring, and savor the harvest by candlelight in the fall.

The village hosts a concert series year-round, locally sourced dinners, demonstrations and workshops. Gardens on the grounds provide a CSA (community sponsored agriculture) farm share and supply ingredients for the cafe.
