Maps of the Shaker West: A Journey of Discovery

  • $20.00

In 1805 when Shaker missionaries came from the East, Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois & Michigan were all considered part of "the West." Working primarily through dissident Presbyterian theologians, the Shakers established communities in Ohio, Kentucky, & Indiana within the first decade. Maps of the Shaker West chronicles the Kentucky Revival sites & Shaker communities in the Shaker West. Directional & site maps as well as drawings of buildings explain each area. Eagle Creek & Straight Creek as well as Darby Plains, short-lived Shaker communities in Ohio, are well documented. Farms owned by various Shaker groups around the time of the Civil War illustrate the role of Shakers in the Underground Railroad. Indexed & footnoted, the book contains 49 maps & 17 illustrations
