Shaker Museum Gala at Future Site in New Lebanon
“Raise the Roof!” was the theme of this year’s Shaker Museum and Library Gala, a dinner dance with silent and live auctions held under a tent on the grounds of the Darrow School, a beautiful former Shaker enclave in New Lebanon. The roof in question is that of the future library, which will one-day be housed in what is presently the roofless shell of an extraordinary stone Shaker barn adjacent to the campus.

Tilden House at the corner of Routes 20 and 22.
