3/3/2012 A gorgous fall afternoon in Shaker Town, KY

A gorgeous fall afternoon in Shaker Town, KY.  This village has been wonderfully preserved and is open to the public, it is very orderly and very interesting.  Did you know the Shaker men and women lived in separate dorm houses and believed in  celibacy?  I think that they taught that hard work and dedication to community would “curb” the immoral thoughts a person might have.  You can figure out why their numbers have dwindled. The hard work and dedication to community is a good idea!
