Then on the second day of your visit take a scenic 45-minute drive to Shaker Museum | Mount Lebanon where in 1859 the world's largest stone barn was constructed by one of America's most progressive Utopian societies, the American Shakers, and is still standing for public viewing at the Historic Mount Lebanon Shaker Village in New Lebanon, New York.
