General Description

Discover America's largest restored Shaker community. Shaker Village is set on 3,000 acres of rolling countryside in the heart of Kentucky's Bluegrass region. With more than 40 miles of multi-use trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding, combined with bird watching and wildflower observation, this National Historic Landmark is a nature lover's paradise. Equipped with 20 stalls, five large paddocks and a heated tack room, The Stables on the property offer a one-stop-shop experience for equestrians. The Nature Preserve boasts native grasses and abundant wildlife, notably Bobwhite quail, due to ongoing conservation efforts that have made it one of the most successful quail restoration projects in the Commonwealth. Located along the Kentucky River, the Dixie Belle Riverboat provides scenic cruises through the Palisades. Canoe and kayak access is available, but boats are not provided. Thirty-four original, restored buildings remain, some which house heritage craft demonstrations and changing history exhibitions. Craft stores on the grounds provide a large selection of arts and crafts.
