Hancock Shaker Village
Pittsfield, Massachusetts
June 14th, 2015

Some info on this structure:

"This building is most likely one of the oldest structures at Hancock Shaker Village. Originally a farmhouse belonging to a convert, the building has grown around the original house, but it still retains its large kitchen hearth and fireplace in the center of the first floor.

The Laundry & Machine Shop is a unique structure even within a Shaker village, as it served as a shop for the joint use of both brothers and sisters. The brethren had a woodworking shop and the sisters had a laundry, both utilizing the 1858 water turbine as a power source. The water turbine and its belt-driven system have been restored and run several machines in the woodworking shop."

Hancock Shaker Village

"This iconic barn was built in 1826 and originally had a conical roof. A series of improvements altered the appearance of the barn after a devastating fire in 1864. A flat monitor roof and cupola were added, as well as a manure pit. By 1870, the Shakers added a clerestory level below the cupola, providing increased light and ventilation.

The barn was used well into the twentieth century, although time began to take its toll. The building began to settle and through-cracks began to show in the walls. In 1968, the museum was able to dismantle the walls, leaving the timber frame intact, and reinforce the foundations. The walls were reassembled using the original stones. Paint analysis revealed a yellow on the exterior woodwork that the Shakers applied after the 1864 fire. This color was restored in 2009."
