A quick visit to this Shaker site was well worth the time to see the location/remnants of the first Shaker establishment in North America. My senior citizen parents & I visited on the final day of an 11 day road trip flying into Indianapolis & flying out from Albany.
They were preparing for a big craft fair the next two days so we were able to peek inside the barn as well as tour the meeting house & museum that is normally open for visits. We viewed a 20 minute video that was worth the time to learn about the Shakers in general plus in particular about this community. It gave a great overview of how the Albany airport is located on the former areas worked/farmed by the Shakers. The grounds were neat along with the herb garden and chickens/fowl in a cage near the barn. My parents were not as familiar with the Shakers as I was, and they enjoyed learning about them.
