Artifacts

While visiting the Shaker Museum, you will have an opportunity to see beautiful artifacts such as homespun blankets, coverlets, kerosene lamps, ironstone, butter churns, oval boxes, and Shaker furniture. These artifacts tell so much about the day-to-day lives of the Shakers here at South Union, and the "world’s" people during that period of time. Each of our exhibits is filled with these lovely artifacts that take you back to the simplicity of the times.
