The Hancock Shaker Village started as a City of Peace in the 1780s with a lifestyle of religion, farming and communal living until well into the 20th century.

The Village Store sells reproduction furniture and toys and there is a restaurant where you can have a farm to table breakfast or lunch. It is open for visitors from the middle of April through October.
