Shaker Village in Martha Stewart Living magazine

Shaker Village, one of Ben and Manda’s favorite places (they go there so often that they pretty much know all the animals), is being spotlighted in the next issue of Martha Stewart Living.

Amy Conway, executive editor of Martha Stewart Living, said Stewart visited Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill “a while back,” saying the domestic diva “was entranced by the architecture” and “found the place to be so beautiful.”

It wasn’t long before the idea for an article was born.

“We found it to be a great opportunity to tell our readers about Shaker style” and to “explain a very important part of our culture,” Conway said.

“It’s in such a beautiful setting … our only challenge was to find out how to edit it down” to fit the space.

Shaker Village is nice. I’ve taken some pictures there myself.
