“cherished for over 200 years”
Nestled in a valley between Mt. Assurance and Mascoma Lake, in Enfield, New Hampshire, the Enfield Shaker site has been cherished for over 200 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 worshipped in the “Shaker Way.”
I don't know why it is listed as FREE, because it is not. It costs $12 to access inside the building and we were asked to pay even if just wanted to walk outside. Not worth it unless you are REALLY interested in that part of history.
