Lonely Planet review

Just west of the town of Pittsfield is Hancock Shaker Village , a fascinating museum illustrating the lives of the Shakers, the religious sect that founded the village in 1783. The Shakers believed in communal ownership, the sanctity of work and celibacy, the latter of which proved to be their demise.
