Hancock Shaker Village
As you explore the far west of Massachusetts, head for Pittsfield and check out the Hancock Shaker Village. Now a museum and impressive attraction, the Hancock Shaker Village was once an actual Shaker Village – one of 19 major villages following the Shaker movement. It was established in 1791. The Shaker Religion was founded in England, circa 1747 by Ann Lee.
While the Hancock Shaker Village was primarily focused on dairy farming, they still found a lucrative opportunity to raise and sell garden seeds. You can visit the Hancock Shaker Village and explore the grounds. Enjoy stunning views of the Berkshires on a lively hike, check out the farms and gardens, and you won't want to miss out on the Beatrice O. Chance Gallery – a wonderful display of art.
