The South Union community was founded in 1807 and disbanded in 1922. Kentucky was a tough place to be a pacifist, anti-slavery Shaker during the Civil War. South Union, overrun by both Union and Confederate troops, has a collection of journals describing the time. Several original buildings have been restored, one of which houses a museum containing artifacts and manuscripts. Also restored is the Shaker Tavern, built in 1869 as a profit-making venture and operated under lease by "wordly" non-Shakers. Appropriately, today it is operated as a bed-and-breakfast that helps to fund the nonprofit Shaker museum. The tavern is located a little over a mile west of the museum on Route 73
