The Enfield Shaker site has been cherished for over 225 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 worshiped in the “Shaker Way.” Today the Museum site is visited by Shaker enthusiasts, tourists, hosts workshops and school programs, and serves as an event venue for weddings, conferences and overnight retreats.
Open daily April - December. Tours by appointment during the winter season: (603) 632-4346. View our Calendar of Events at www.shakermuseum.org for special events and programs.
