Director of Hancock Shaker Village, Jennifer Trainer Thompson, had this to say:

It feels wonderful to reopen, and welcome people back to this extraordinary historic landmark. The farm in springtime is overflowing with new life.  It signals hope.

Capacity will be in accordance with guidance from the Massachusetts Governor’s Office and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The Village is also opening a new Shaker trail in the southern woods. Archaeological remains of Shaker buildings will be at the end of the trail.

LOOK: Stunning vintage photos capture the beauty of America's national parks

Today these parks are located throughout the country in 25 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The land encompassing them was either purchased or donated, though much of it had been inhabited by native people for thousands of years before the founding of the United States. These areas are protected and revered as educational resources about the natural world, and as spaces for exploration.
