The Shaker Movement or more technically the United Society of Believers in Christ's Second Appearing, was an offshoot branch of the Quakers and in this part of upstate NY, Watervliet
(present-day Colonie) was called home. Today, the Shaker Heritage Society is a non-profit organization that aims to promote and preserve this very first Shaker settlement in the nation. The society holds different activities and events to educate people about the Shakers, their culture and other facts. Craft fairs, workshops, concerts, dramas and much more are organized throughout the year.
