What is Canterbury Shaker Village?
Canterbury Shaker Village, Inc., is an internationally-known non-profit museum and National Historic Landmark founded in 1969 to preserve the heritage of the Canterbury Shakers. It has 25 restored original Shaker buildings, four reconstructed Shaker buildings, and 694 acres of forests, fields, gardens, nature trails, and mill ponds under permanent conservation easement.
Canterbury Shaker Village is dedicated to preserving the 200-year legacy of the Canterbury Shakers and to providing a place for learning, reflection, and renewal of the human spirit. Visitors are encouraged to learn about the life, ideals, values, and history of the Canterbury Shakers through tours, programs, exhibits, research, and publications.
Here you'll find Shaker related products from brooms to boxes, specialty foods to baskets, and much more. We take pride in focusing on authentic items made by local craftsman.
Dining at The Village
The Creamery Cafe welcomes visitors with a simple menu of Shaker-inspired soups, sandwiches, salads and more, all made with fresh ingredients from area producers. Enjoy the warm, comfortable atmosphere of our historic building and its long tables and Shaker chairs, or create your own picnic and stroll the grounds to find the perfect tranquil spot to enjoy your meal -- in the gardens, by the pond, or on the lawns or patio.
