From Shaker Pedia
This site is about the Shakers - formally known as "The United Society of Believers in Christ's Second Appearing"
There are contributions from various Shaker Communities, originally some 17, now only one, a number of the rest are museums.
There are also contributions from Shaker scholars, a number of regular seminars.
There are also digitized journals from various communities and writings.
Since this is a wikipedia, there are number of writers adding to the content here.
This is also a active database tracking some 16,000 Shakers, winter Shakers and other visitors to the communities. This is at Memoroirs@Shakerpedia
