We had a wonderful book discussion and signing on Wednesday July 19 with author Jack Kelly! A special thank you to Paul Grondahl, Executive Director of the New York State Writers Institute (co-sponsors of the event), for introducing Jack Kelly and providing detailed context for the evening's talk about the Erie Canal.

Jack Kelly focused on topics of particular relevance to the Shaker Heritage Society, such as the role of the Erie Canal in the revival of religious and spiritual communities across New York State in the 19th century. Audience members asked many interesting questions, and there was even speculation about whether the nearly 53 foot long Meeting House beams may have been shipped along the canal!

Music in the Meeting House with Shelving Rock
Saturday, October 8th at 7:30pm

Shelving Rock is a magical blending of two experienced musicians from diverse backgrounds being able to share the same muse. Stephen Iachetta, the “Shaker Fiddler” joins together with T. Breeze VerDant, the “Folker with a rock and roll heart.” The result? Like any good cooking experiment where you throw previously unmixed ingredients together together not knowing what the result is… yet you follow your intuitions and throw ‘em in anyway… and get lucky with a great fresh tasting recipe! Both players are very open to whatever approach the other takes at any moment and it reveals itself in the freshness of the sound.  For information:

Suggested Donation: $10.00 per person, $8.00 for student, senior or SHS member, payable at the door.  Under 18 admitted free.

Advance tickets are available for this concert in the museum gift shop.
