The Tiny Shaker Town In New Hampshire That’s The Perfect Day Trip Destination

New Hampshire has some of the richest history you’ll find in New England. From crumbling old farm houses to stories passed down generation to generation, this history reveals how the Granite State came to be. One of the best places to see this history is at the only Shaker village in New Hampshire. A museum since 1992, the village has some of the best intact examples of Shaker life in America and offers a great way to spend a day.
