The Shakers established their Chosen Vale here in 1793, with majestic buildings and gardens. Walking tours of the historic district, exhibits, craft demonstrations, a restaurant and hotel rooms located in a historic Shaker building.
Plan a visit to the Enfield Shaker Museum, where you can view eight Shaker buildings (including the Great Stone Dwelling, the largest Shaker dwelling ever built) on a self-guided or guided tour. Also, take in the sights and smells of our Shaker Gardens, watch skilled artisans demonstrate their traditional crafts, learn the story of the Enfield Shakers through exhibits of their furniture, tools, clothing, and historic photographs, and browse through the Shaker Store.
The museum store, located in the Great Stone Dwelling, contains a wonderful collection of Shaker-related gifts, including cherry oval boxes, tin ware, candles, pottery and more.
