Enfield Shaker Museum, Enfield

4.5
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.”
Enfield Shaker Museum is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Enfield Edition.

  • A beautiful venue for magical events, CJ the DJ enjoys hosting fundraisers and weddings at this historic treasure, one of New Hampshire's finest. The Shakers had an interesting culture and were a huge part of New England's past. #CJtheDJ #wedding #charity #shaker #museum
  • I love the museum. It steps back into history and has a lot of fun educational programs.
  • I loved coming here on school trips and love all the festivals they have it was very fun to be able to make brooms and try cheese and I like the ouctions too!
  • excellent, informative guided tour of the museum. a nice contrast to the history and our visit a few days earlier to canterbury shaker village. we lucked out that the apple cider & cheese festival was on the same day and admission was included with the fee for the museum. fun time.
  • What a beautiful and memorable place. Attended a wedding here and had a blast. So beautiful.
