Shaker Village Of Pleasant Hill

3501 Lexington Road

Our Mission:

The mission of Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill, a non-profit corporation, is to preserve and maintain the site of the Shaker community which once existed here; to protect its buildings, its countryside and the records and articles pertaining to its builders; to make these buildings and grounds available for the broader uses of culture, education and recreation benefiting the citizens of Kentucky and others who visit the Commonwealth.

Our Vision:

Here, history and hospitality will come together to offer experiences our guests will want to enjoy again and again. Our authentic identity will create genuine feelings of belonging through meaningful connections to history, a refreshing closeness to nature, and simple moments of peace. We will make memories as lasting as the Shaker story itself.

The historical buildings and tools are fascinating. The Gardens and the walk around the beautiful campus is relaxing. We took the boat trip for the first time and because of perfect weather and a normal river pool that was good too. Do not try to walk to boat ride too treacherous on narrow road. Two cars can't pass unless small. Food is wonderful and delicious also.

So much fun, this town takes you back in time and is well worth the money. You can pay admission to view the old buildings or just have a traditional meal at the restaurant. Great food and service, and the setting is beautiful. You can also visit the barns to see the animals or the gardens or just walk on one of the many trails. I highly recommend Shaker Town for all ages.

All the guides are extremely friendly and informative. It's very clear that they love the site and are dedicated to teaching people about it and keeping it beautiful. There's a guide at the farm named Kitty that was so friendly to my niece, showing us all about the different animals there. Later, she gave us recommendations of the most interesting buildings to stop by in the village. The whole site is wonderfully maintained and very beautiful.

This was kind of your typical tourist trap with some history and OK hiking. $14 to walk around and lean some history about some very weird people that are no long around is a bit much... I am a huge history buff, but this was not interesting or historical. Save the $14 and walk around an your own and check out one of the hikes. I can't comment on the actual hotel portion, but I would not mind staying there. Maybe our next trip to the Danville area we will check that out.

This was a lovely experience. The grounds are dip peaceful. All of the tori guides were friendly and knowledgeable. Holly at Shaker Music was particularly amazing. The restaurant is good and just adds to the ambiance of this amazing place. If you enjoy history, beauty, nature, and farm to table food, this is definitely worth the trip.
