Today, we enjoy telling ghost stories, reveling in a well-timed fright or harrowing tale. Few of us still believe in the power of the spiritual world, the world known to the Shakers as “the Summerland.” To the Shakers, however, the spiritual world was an important part of community life. Learn about the growth of spiritualism as part of Shaker religion and hear firsthand Shaker accounts of otherworldly encounters on this 60-75 minute tour.

Scheduling for a group? Private tours at different dates or times may be arranged for groups of 10+ people. Please contact, Becky Soules, Interpretation Manager, at 603-783-9511 ext. 284 or at, for more information and to schedule a private tour.
