I love to visit this place, Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill, so peacful! These particular images were taken on our first overnight stay. I hope to stay again with better weather to explore further. The United Society of Believers In Christ’s Second Appearing, more commonly know has the Shakers because of their expressive behavior during their services, came to central Kentucky in 1805. They established the Village of Pleasant Hill which peaked with 500 residents in the 1820’s. They acquired more that 4,000 acres which I really hope to see more of due to they have many trails and even a riverboat, Dixie Belle Riverboat. Which you can ride on the Kentucky River, sooo cool!
