Posted on March 31, 2010 by Stan Rosen

hancock Beginning this weekend, April 3rd and lasting through April 25th, Hancock Shaker Village is showcasing its new calves, piglets, lambs and chicks in their Round Stone Barn. Also this month you will see their heirloom gardens come to life.

The Village is open daily from 10 until 4. Beyond the obvious attraction of being able to hold and help feed the newborns, enjoy Hancock Shaker Village for what it is, a living anachronism. This working, historic landmark demonstrates why the Shakers occupy an important place in American history. They developed many of the innovative farming and construction techniques still used today.

Hampton Terrace Bed and Breakfast is located in Lenox, about a twenty minute drive from Hancock Shaker Village. While staying here, also visit the Norman Rockwell Museum, Ventfort Hall, and the Clark Art Institute.
