Our authentic 10-acre walkable Shaker village features 20 historic buildings, including the iconic Round Stone Barn, a working farm with heritage-breed animals, and extensive gardens of vegetables, herbs and flowers — all surrounded by 750 acres of rolling pasture and woodlands.
Walking tour maps are available in English, French, German, Japanese and Spanish. Or rent our Audio Tour for $2, available in English, German, French and Italian. Your Visit, our orientation video, is captioned in English for the hearing impaired. A script version is also available — just ask a guest service staff member!
DISABLED ACCESS The Visitor Center, Center for Shaker Studies, restrooms, galleries, Village Store, Village Harvest Cafe and all meeting spaces at Hancock Shaker Village are wheelchair accessible. Compact-dirt pathways and wooden boardwalks throughout the Village provide access to the gardens and grounds, as well as the mile-long Farm & Forest Trail, which also features interpretive signage. Some buildings in the historic Village are wheelchair accessible via ramp, including the Round Stone Barn and the Trustees’ Office & Store. Keep in mind, however, that most buildings in the historic Village are NOT wheelchair accessible. Wheelchairs are available free of charge with advance reservation — just call 413.443.0188 x 100.
PETS Because Hancock Shaker Village is a working farm with livestock and poultry, pets are not allowed on the Village grounds. Service dogs are welcome, however.
