Linda Steigleder, Director and CEO of Hancock Shaker Village
PITTSFIELD >> Linda Steigleder, president and CEO of Hancock Shaker Village, plans to step down in November after five years at the helm of the Route 20 museum. During her tenure, Steigleder said Thursday that the museum "came out on the other side" of lean Great Recession years and is now "getting stronger, balancing our budget." "Steigleder is a seasoned museum professional, passionate about Hancock Shaker Village and has helped strengthen earned and contributed income, diversify public-program offerings, and attract high-caliber talent to the Board of Trustees, staff and volunteer corps," Cain said. Much of running a modern museum involves finding "innovative ways to survive financially," Steigleder said, and so went her work through the years. According to Steigleder, though, the nonprofit's debt now totals less than $200,000. "It's not onerous debt," Steigleder said. "I think some of our sister institutions in the Berkshires probably have more onerous debt." She added, "We have a lot more work to do; we need more help. But it's not a place, I think, that has a mess on its hands." Steigleder said she has taken a "spend what you raise" approach to keep budgets in check, but more needs to be done in the fundraising department. "You can't quite keep up," she said. "That's the bear of it all. But we've done much better in the last five years." Last year, the Dyson Foundation provided $100,000 to study a potential HSV-Berkshire Museum merger which never came to fruition. But, Steigleder said, it brought the organizations and their respective staffs closer together, and tightened up shared programming, marketing and exhibits. Ultimately, the numbers simply didn't show significant savings to justify a potentially "painful" merger, Steigleder said. "Some day if we want to revisit a deeper partnership, that's certainly a possibility, but it's not going to happen in the next few years," she said. The museum's 14-member board has known of Steigleder's planned departure since the fall, and will have hired her replacement before she walks away. Prior to HSV, Steigleder managed the Storm King Art Center in New Windsor, N.Y., and the Hill-Stead Museum in Farmington, Conn. She said she doesn't plan to retire but is seeking more "flexibility." Advising her successor, Steigleder advocated taking on future restoration projects in small batches and networking among potential donors. "We need more help from major donors," Steigleder said.

"This village had its own cidery," Hancock CEO Linda Steigleder said.
"They had alcohol. They made alcohol. They sold alcohol. In fact, Shakers had an industry of any kind of food substances they could create," Steigleder emphasized. Steigleder was quite clear.

HSV President and CEO Linda Steigleder declined to elaborate during a brief phone interview, but she asserted that the legacy museum on Route 20 just west of Pittsfield is not "financially motivated" in its quest for a partner.
"The original Shaker literature said, 'We will dwindle, and then we will regenerate,' " Steigleder added. Steigleder has cited a dropoff in field trips by schools caused by decreased government funding. Steigleder's total compensation was listed as $116,218 in 2013. The Mount Lebanon Shaker Museum, operating off Route 20 about three miles west of Hancock Shaker Village, has been identified by Steigleder for a potential expansion of ongoing collaborations.
