Shaker Village After the Shakers

(#1416) from Kentucky Life Program 1416 (2008)

Between the death of the last Shaker living at Mercer County’s Pleasant Hill in 1923 and the start of restoration work in the 1960s, the buildings and lands of the Shaker settlement were put to a variety of other uses. Former residents from that time and descendants of former Shakers recall life in the village and discuss the sect’s legacy to modern America.

Trouble with video in Firefox:

This is a known issue with the Window Media Video format.

Windows Media plugin is no longer maintained in Firefox, causing it to stop working.

Solution: Change the Firefox configuration file.
  1. Open a new tab or window.
    In the "Location/URL" bar, type "about:config" and press Enter.
    (The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page will appear. Click I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue to the about:config page.)
  2. In the "about:config" page search bar, enter:
    "plugins.load_appdir_plugins"
  3. Double click the preference name to change the "value" to true.
  4. Close and restart Firefox. The video should now work once you reopen the page.
    If not, then the WMV plugin may not be installed.
