Hancock Shaker Village Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Five miles west of Pittsfield. Constructed and maintained by the Boy Scouts of America, this circuit travels wooded, stream, and hilltop sites key to a 19th-cintury Shaker society.
The tour visits an area that held a Shaker family residence, farm and pasture, mills, waterworks, and two holy summits; plaques identify the points of archaeological and historical note. Special attractions: National Historic Trail with religious and historical sites, rock walls, mixed woods, fall foliage."
