Historic Shaker Village, Harrodsburg, Kentucky

Located in the heart of the Bluegrass Region, Harrodsburg is Kentucky's oldest town. Founded in 1774, it was the first permanent English settlement west of the Allegheny Mountains and today offers a step back in time with an appealing mix of farmland, architecture and culture.

Attractions include Old Fort Harrod State Park, Perryville Civil War Battlefield, the Legend of Daniel Boone Drama and the famous Shaker Village. Tour area horse farms or the Dixie Belle riverboat, try your luck at the Keeneland Race Track, go boating on Herrington Lake and visit historic downtown Harrodsburg with plenty of fine restaurants and antique shops.

The Shakers, otherwise known as The United Society of Believers in Christ's Second Appearing, were a communal society who, at their peak in numbers in the mid-1800's, originally came to central Kentucky in 1805. Settling on a high plateau above the Kentucky River near Harrodsburg, they established a village named Pleasant Hill, devoted to a peaceful way of life which was reflected in their celibacy, belief in equality of race and sex, and freedom from prejudice.
