Museum Receives Save America’s Treasures Grant.

Enfield Shaker Museum has received a $129,667 matching grant from the Department of Interior, National Park Service funded through the Historic Preservation Fund and Save America’s Treasurers grant program, for the restoration of the Stone Machine Shop / Stone Mill (1849). This grant will support a three-year project to repoint the masonry exterior and to complete the restoration of the windows of the building.

The Save America’s Treasures program supports community-based preservation and conservation work on some of our nation’s most important collections, artifacts, structures, and sites for the benefit of future generations. In 2022, 80 projects in 32 states and the District of Columbia received grants totaling $24.25 million. The Museum’s grant was the only one given to an institution in the State of New Hampshire.

Jeremy Brown of Wachusett Chimney will be repointing masonry exterior; David Lewis of Boxwood Preservation and Woodworking will be restoring the windows; Robert Adam is the Project Supervisor; Richard Dabrowski, Chair of the Museum’s Preservation Committee, is the Project Administrator.
