South Union Shaker Village has been in the business of historic preservation for over fifty years. The goal of preservation is not simply for visual effect. It has a greater purpose. There are stories to be told about the people who inhabited this place. Those stories, recounted within the spaces where they actually happened, create visitor experiences that have a far greater impact than the most meticulously restored buildings. Please help us continue to preserve for the sake of education. There is still so much to learn.
