On Sunday July 9th, 2017 from 3-5PM the Canterbury Shaker Village will be celebrating their 225th anniversary! As part of their acknowledgement of the town and it’s citizens that have supported them all these years, they have asked the Canterbury Historical Society to co-host the event. All Village staff members and CHS board members will be present to meet and greet, and our new book will be for sale. All Canterbury residents can visit the Village for free this day, and continuing for the duration of 2017!
The birthday celebration will include their famous rosewater cake and sarsaparilla ice cream floats serenaded with music by local fiddler and contra dance caller, Dudley Laufman. Attendees will be given a gift of a bookmark produced on their antique letter-press.
