The Shaker Heritage Society is a non-profit organization that offers award winning educational programming about the Shakers, their innovative spirit and their influence on American culture. The Society is actively concerned with preserving the integrity of the Watervliet Shaker National Historic District, site of America’s first Shaker settlement.

The Church Family site, where the Society’s offices are located, is the heart of the 770 acre Historic District. The property includes nine remaining Shaker buildings, herb garden, open fields, apple orchard, Ann Lee Pond nature preserve, and the Shaker cemetery where founder, Ann Lee is buried.  Visitors are welcome to picnic, hike, enjoy a concert or workshop or just to relax and experience the atmosphere of this special place. Check our our programs and events to find an event that might interest you!

The Society relies on your contribution to sustain its education programs and efforts to revitalize the historic site.  We can’t succeed without your help so please donate today and help save a part of America’s great heritage.
