ACCESSIBILITY: We strive to make as much of Hancock Shaker Village accessible to the disabled as possible. The Visitor Center, Center for Shaker Studies, restrooms, galleries, Village Store, Village Harvest Cafe and all meeting spaces are wheelchair accessible. Compact-dirt pathways and wooden boardwalks throughout the Village provide access to the gardens and grounds. Some of our historic buildings are wheelchair accessible via ramp, including the Round Stone Barn. The Village’s mile-long Farm & Forest trail is also handicapped-accessible, and includes interpretive signage. Hancock Shaker Village’s orientation video is captioned in English for the hearing impaired, and we offer a script version of all videos shown at the Village.
Wheelchairs are available at no charge, however advance reservation is recommended. For questions about access, call 413.443.0188 x 100.
PETS: Because Hancock Shaker Village is a working farm with livestock and poultry, we do not allow pets. Service dogs are allowed.
