Shaker Seminar 2010

What do World Monuments Fund, marriage break-up and the status of women in the 19th century, Green energy, Black Minstrels and a baby cow have in common?

We are attending the 2010 Shaker Seminar being hosted this year at Hancock Shaker Village in Pittsfield, MA. It is the village’s 50th year as a museum, and extra attention is being paid to this important moment in their history.

The lectures are on the whole very interesting; and as usual the people who attend are fascinating, generous, and incredibly knowledgeable about all things Shaker.

    Hello Bruce, As yet, they have not decided is what we were told upon leaving yesterday. In fact, they asked for suggestions; and for volunteers who might be interested in helping to plan the event.

    So, where are you going to meet next year?
