Kentucky : Shaker Villiage

The Shakers were a social religious group who emerged in the 1800's in England and America.  Wikipedia:"The United Society of Believers in Christ's Second Appearing is a religious sect, also known as the Shakers, founded in the 18th century in England, having branched off from a Quaker community. They were known as "Shaking Quakers" because of their ecstatic behavior during worship services. In 1747 women assumed leadership roles within the sect, notably Jane Wardley and Mother Ann Lee."  They were believers in a simple, sustainable lifestyle, devoted to constructive life.
