About Enfield Shaker Museum

Nestled in a valley between Mt. Assurance and Mascoma Lake, in Enfield, New Hampshire, the Enfield Shaker community 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. The Enfield Shakers farmed over 3,000 acres of land, educated children in model schools, and worshiped in the “Shaker Way.”

Today, their story is preserved by the Enfield Shaker Museum.
