The Shakers in Revolutionary America

Mother Ann Lee and her eight followers set out to build a religious community in one of the most uncertain and volatile periods in American history. Join Dr. Jennifer Dorsey in exploring what the Shakers were up against when they settled outside of Albany. Participants may bring a brown bag dinner. Dessert provided by the museum.
