Hancock Shaker Village is the ideal setting to spend time with family and friends over the holiday weekend. The grounds are open for you to enjoy. Visit our heritage-breed turkeys in the barnyard and say hello to other animals in the barn. Then create your own crafty barnyard animal in the Discovery Barn to take home. Meander along the Farm & Forest Trail or hike the Shaker Trail. Learn about the Shakers and see their beautifully designed objects in the 19th-century Brick Dwelling anytime, or on tours at 11am and 2pm. Visit our Round Stone Barn at your leisure or join a guided tour at noon. Then head to the Laundry & Machine Shop, witness the power of the turbine, and learn about Shaker sustainability. Woodworking and blacksmithing demos throughout the day. Shop for the holidays in Shaker Mercantile for handcrafted goods you can’t find elsewhere. Warm up with spiced local cider and autumn lunch at Seeds Market Cafe.
