The mission of the Shaker Heritage Society is to strengthen our community through educational programs and historic preservation focused on the Shaker ideals of sustainability, equality, compassion, cooperation, and the pursuit of a meaningful life.

The vision of the Shaker Heritage Society is to serve as an internationally recognized resource for interpretation of the history, ideals, and cultural identity of the Shakers. We explore the past to better understand the present world and future possibilities. By doing so, we inspire a deep appreciation for the history of America’s first Shaker settlement and the benefits of historic preservation.
