In this video, they talk aboutShaker design and style

The Shakers were known for their innovative engineering, beautiful architecture, and simple style. Here are a few examples of those things at Pleasant Hill.

The Shakers were named as such because of their use of dancing and "shaking" in their religious services. Music and dance were incorporated into their worship to heighten emotions. They also congregated in huge numbers, often in the thousands! These huge services were mainly attended by people on the frontier (the Midwest at the time) who didn't often get to attend large religious services.
