"The New Hampshire Shakers were innovators and leaders in technology," noted Funi Burdick, Executive Director. "Many people do not know that they in fact owned one of the first cars in the state. The Vintage Car Show and our partnership with the White Mountain Regional Chapter of the Model A Ford Club of America is a tribute to the Shakers' heritage."
Other upcoming events at Canterbury Shaker Village include "Ghost Encounters" on October 18 and 19 and Christmas at Canterbury on December 7 and 14. Fall workshops include wood turned Christmas ornaments and Shaker baking. For a complete list of special events and workshops visit www.shakers.org.
