A sturdy historic barn, a hearty country picnic, and a hot early summer day. What's not to like? And, that what is being offered at the Shaker Museum - Mount Lebanon this Saturday.

The free community event will take place beginning during an opening reception at 6 p.m. in the North Pasture near the 1859 Great Stone Barn.

Jonathan Dixon, a Hudson Valley chef and author, will provide pulled pork sandwiches. Soft drinks and various sides also will be available, and guests are welcome to bring additional beverages. The food is free and available until it runs out.

Guests will have the opportunity to preview the summer exhibition "Break Every Yoke: Shakers, Gender Equality, and Women’s Suffrage," and the installations "Shaker Woodworkers" and "Shaker Blacksmiths," all in the 1829 Brethren’s Workshop. 

Shaker Museum - Mount Lebanon will open for the season Friday. Visitors may visit the grounds and the shop any time between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Friday through Monday through October 9. Guided tours will be available Friday through Monday, beginning at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Access to the buildings, exhibition, and installations is by guided tour appointment only.

The facility is located at 202 Shaker Road in the Columbia County facility. Phone: (518) 794-9100.
