One of the James Gardners (who
owned property in Tyringham, Berkshire County, Massachusetts;
specifically, near the border of the Lee township) donated
his property to the Tyringham Shakers. The property
became rundown and was eventually burned (in the early
1970s) by the fire department because it was a hazard.
The following chart shows census information for the
Tyringham Shaker community from 1790 through 1870 (the
community closed in 1875).
