This Shaker community was established by the Shakers in 1807, and closed in 1922. The South Union Shaker Village was established as an independent, non-profit, educational institution to preserve and maintain the site of the Shaker Society which once existed at South Union, protect its buildings, its landscape and its folklife and material culture, use the buildings and grounds to further the interest of the public in historic preservation and Shaker history, and to sponsor continuing programs of an educational and cultural nature. Several original buildings have been restored and now house a fine museum of Shaker folklife and material culture, gift shop, and more. Artifacts that can be seen include homespun blankets, coverlets, butter churns, kerosene lamps, ironstone, oval boxes, and Shaker furniture.
