About the North Family at Mount Lebanon Shaker Village: For 160 years, from 1787 to 1947, the Shakers at Mount Lebanon led the largest and most successful utopian communal society in America. With over 6,000 acres and 100 buildings, Mount Lebanon Shaker Village was a driving force in the agricultural, industrial, commercial, and institutional activities of its day. The Village was divided into smaller "Family" groupings (Center, Church, Second, South, East, North, and so on), each with its own leadership, members, and commercial activities. The North Family was purchased by the Shaker Museum and Library in 2004 as the future home for the museum.
