An Illuminated Village

If you’ve ever been to Shaker Village after sunset, you know it gets dark. Really dark. While we relish in that peaceful darkness most of the year, we take advantage of the holiday season to highlight this already beautiful property. The holidays at Shaker Village mean all hands on deck for decorating trees, stringing twinkle lights, wrapping fresh greenery in red ribbons to make fragrant swags and more. All of our elves… er, employees jump in and lend a hand in making our site shine bright for the month of December. Seeing the Village lit up at night is definitely a different experience and is bound to ignite some holiday spirit within you!
