Enfield Shaker Museum Mission

The mission of the Enfield Shaker Museum, an educational institution, is to preserve and share its historical structures, landscape, and Shaker cultural heritage with our multi-generational visitors, members, and the global community.

Every day we fulfill our mission by:

  • educating our audience about the history of this multifaceted site
  • preserving and expanding the spiritual legacy of the site
  • meeting changing community and organizational needs by supporting activities that foster improved quality of life
  • deepening our audiences’ connection with the Museum through hands-on participation
  • incorporating the Shaker ideals of order, organization, frugality, simplicity, community, and diversity into our operations
  • collaborating with other Shaker historic sites and nonprofit organizations to ensure best practices
