Shaker Dam Coffeehouse & Stanmeyer GalleryWhen National Geographic photographer John Stanmeyer opened the Shaker Dam Coffeehouse & Stanmeyer Gallery in a nineteenth-century house in West Stockbridge in 2013, it instantly became a local favorite. The social justice–driven cafe serves ethically sourced, expertly prepared Counter Culture coffee and tasty goodies, while the upstairs is a gallery that displays Stanmeyer’s stunning photography. Shaker Dam also hosts frequent readings and other events to bring the community together, and the wood-burning stove makes it particularly cozy in winter. Stanmeyer himself can be found hanging out when he’s not off covering the migrant crisis in Europe or holy week in Jerusalem.
