Shaker Village

BY Edmund V. Gillon, Jr.


Evoking an earlier and simpler era of quotidian life, this Shaker Village is both historically educational and creatively gratifying! Six cut-and-assemble architectural models are printed on heavy stock and represent an agrarian village typical of the Shaker communities of the early 19th century. Recommended for ages 8 and up, each full-color, scaled model (3.5mm: 1 foot) includes brief historical background notes and simple cut-and-paste instructions.
