This outdoor guided tour highlights the Shakers’ contributions to architectural design,
landscaping, waterworks, and masonry. Visitors will examine the landscape around them and learn about the decisions that the Shakers made – from planting maple trees and laying out a productive vegetable garden to building rock walls, creating an elaborate system of millponds, and making decisions about the external features of the Village (planting trees, clearing agricultural ground, etc.) as well as architectural building style and paint color.
