Implementation of a new audio and podcast tour of the Hancock Shaker Village's 1,200-acre site.

Hancock Shaker Village requests support for the implementation of an audio tour interpretation program delivered on site and offered in part on our website. The tour will enrich interpretation of the historic core of our 1,200 acre site, which includes 20 buildings, historic landscape, woodlands, barnyards, an historic cemetary, heirloom herb and vegetable gardens. The tour will also interpret areas of the Village which have not previously been interpreted for the public. HSV completed a consultation grant to outlilne humanities themes that will be most appropriately illuminated by the tour, and has identified other themes that have not been fully explored at the Village previously. HSV has researched, produced and installed interpretive signage on the site which will coordinate with the audio tour. The tours will help visitors understand and 'read' the site better, gaining knowledge of existing and lost structures.
