The Shaker community was established in 1807 by the Shakers. And even though it closed in 1922, it has now become a place for rediscovering a culture and heritage.

The Shaker Museum features the way of life in South Union. It was established for the preservation and maintenance of the site of the Shaker society, which used to exist in South Union. It fulfils its mission by protecting the buildings and landscapes as well as its folk life and material culture. Visitors to the Museum will be able to view some of the original buildings that houses materials depicting this culture and past of Shaker, with some of them also offering overnight lodging. Through artifacts that are housed and displayed in these restored buildings this culture and heritage are represented and illustrated for the visitors.

The Shaker Museum, or the non-profit South Union Shaker Village, also sponsors programs and other educational and cultural opportunities. Guests can also take a look at the gift shop, which offers souvenirs, memorabilia, and other gift items.
