Acquisitions and Item Donations

There are two ways that a small museum like ours can increase its collections and keep the exhibits fresh: through donations of Shaker items by individuals, and by purchasing them.

Donating Shaker Items

If you have an item that you think is of Shaker manufacture, or which might have belonged to the Shakers at some point, our Museum Curator would be glad to help you. Remember, donations to the Museum are tax-deductible.

For more information, call Linda at 490-5709, or contact her via e-mail at

Acquisitions Fund

In the winter of 2016-2017, FASM established a separate special fund to purchase acquisitions for our collection. Donotrs’ contributions are tax-deductible and will ber very welcomed, given the high proces that Shaker items command on the market.

Museum Hours:

Museum Hours: 1 PM – 4 PM on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and by appointment.

Closed for the season. See you in the spring!

Admission: Free. Donations are gratefully accepted.

We are dog-friendly. Well-behaved dogs on leash are welcome in our building.
