During the last couple years, Popular Woodworking Magazine has been involved with the restoration efforts at this village, a beautiful group of original buildings still in their original setting. The village isn't yet open to the public, but we have arranged to get you special access with guides who are restoring the village's Meeting House. Get a close look at Shaker craftsmanship – from the toolmarks to the cut nails. See some of the original furniture pieces in the collection, and get a privileged look at this amazingly untouched gem. The village is located about 23 miles away and the tour will last for 1 ½ hours.
