The Enfield Shaker Museum: We Make You Freely Welcome!
Imagine a place so beautiful and serene that the Shakers called it the “Chosen Vale.”
Nestled in a valley between Mt. Assurance and Mascoma Lake, in Enfield, New Hampshire, the Enfield Shaker site has been cherished for over 200 years. At its peak in the mid 19th century, the community was home to three “Families” of Shakers. They practiced equality of the sexes and races, celibacy, pacifism and communal ownership of property. Shakers farmed over 3,000 acres of land, educated children in model schools and worshipped in the “Shaker Way.”
Today, their story is preserved by the Enfield Shaker Museum
Great Stone Dwelling House
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the site is a vibrant cultural, community and educational center.
The Museum offers spectacular views and splendid accommodations.
Enfield Shaker Museum is a 501(c)3 non-profit educational institution dedicated to interpreting and preserving the complex history of the Enfield Shaker Village and the Missionaries of La Salette.
