Shaker Museum And Library

The museum celebrates Columbia County's strong heritage of Shakers, an 18th century religion most noted for the singing, dancing, and marching that took place during worship, as well as the hymn, "Simple Gifts." Visitors can see Shaker furniture, textiles, tools, and agricultural machinery.

We hope you enjoy our work.
