Abstract

Though Shakers lived at Tyringham from 1780 until 1875, the most well-known event of its history is the departure of twenty- three members in 1858. The purpose of this article is to fully discuss the departures of 1858 and for the first time discover the true nature of the incident. In addition, by placing this event in its proper context, other valuable insights can be gained about Tyringham Shaker history as well about Shakerism as a whole.
