Shaker Village Overnight Tour September 6 and 7, 2016 Cancelled

The Museum at the Friends Homes regretfully announces the cancellation of our fall trip .In recent days we have had more cancellations than reservations. This makes the expense of the bus prohibitive as the company does not have smaller buses. All monies will are being returned. Thank you very much for traveling with us in the past.

We will still be doing our ghost walks this fall and our Christmas home tour in December, so don’t forget us!
