Stereoviews of Shaker Villages

In his groundbreaking book, The Shaker Image, Elmer Pearson wrote in 1974:
“The importance of the stereographic views in a visual record of Shaker history should not be underestimated. When the popularity of the stereoscope was at its peak [1870-1890’s], the Shakers, changing with the times, admitted photographers to their villages and permitted them to photograph not only the exteriors of buildings, but the interiors as well. Earlier, “the world’s people” had been permitted to enter only the offices and stores of the villages.”

Pearson estimated that there are more than 350 different stereographic views of the Shakers. No single Shaker museum, library, or private collection has a complete set of Shaker stereoviews.

The Shaker stereoviews on this web site are provided by Enfield Shaker Museum for personal study, research, and teaching. They are organized by Shaker village and, within villages, by date. To view larger images of the stereoviews, please click on the titles below.

Stereoscopes and the Shakers

Stereoviews (properly called “stereograph cards”) consist of two nearly identical photographs paired to produce the illusion of a single three-dimensional image when viewed through a stereoscope. Soon after Oliver Wendell Holmes invented a simplified stereoscope in Boston about 1859, the Shakers and their villages became a popular subject for photographers.

In 1872, Shaker Brother Nelson Chase of the Enfield, New Hampshire Shaker community invented a “new and Improved Pocket Stereoscope.” Click here to read a copy of the patent granted to him by the U.S. Patent Office (“Improvement in Folding Stereoscopes”, Patent No. 129,100, dated July 16, 1872). Chase’s stereoscopes are extremely rare today and are sought after by Shaker collectors.
