Tour White Water Shaker Village. White Water, established in 1823, is one of the
24 Shaker communal villages founded in the United States. The village is home to
the country’s only remaining brick meeting house which was built in 1827 with an
unusual suspended truss system. In 1832 the large dwelling was constructed next
door. Learn about the daily life of a Shaker. Discover the styles of businesses the
Shakers conducted. Check out our collections of Shaker goods. Explore the
