This religious sect, named for the shaking and twitching they did while worshipping, lived in Kentucky from 1805 to 1910. The community, which is the largest restored Shaker Village in the US, has 34 restored buildings, 3,000 acres of preserved farmland, and 25 miles of handcrafted rock fences. Learn all about how they lived and prospered until their celibate lifestyle caught up with them and they eventually died off.
