Review for HANCOCK SHAKER VILLAGE INC, Pittsfield, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

While attending a five day class at the Hancock Shaker Village I was introduced to many volunteers and staff members. The level of energy and enthusiasm exhibited by these folks was inspiring to say the least. The Shaker Village provides an environment conducive to learning, doing, or relaxing and is actively preserving and educating the public about a culture that valued honesty and hard work. We are slowly loosing focus on some of the values embraced by the Shakers and having access to a facility like the Shaker Village helps remind us of our not so distant past.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

genuinely excited about the information they are sharing with the public. The efforts put forth by the restoration volunteers appear tireless and the results achieved are spectacular.
