2021 Online Fall Auction

Enfield Shaker Museum is thrilled to announce that our 2021 Fall Auction is live online! Join the fun and bid on an exciting array of items, including gift certificates, socially distanced experiences, and handmade crafts from local artisans as well as some causes that sit close to all of our hearts!

Auction proceeds support Museum general operations, education, and preservation efforts--as well as our yearly Cause Within a Cause!

Thank you for stopping by and HAPPY BIDDING!

CAUSE WITHIN A CAUSE:

This year's Cause Within a Cause is Visitor Infrastructure.

Infrastructure: it's the thing you don't notice until it's missing: an easier step up into a historic building, information more easily accessible as a map, well-lit spaces to see the historical treasures you came to see, and places to rest when rest is needed.

Help Enfield Shaker Museum enhance visitors’ experience to ensure their enjoyment and safety. Your donation will support the following physical improvements:

• Building entrance railings
• A garden information kiosk with benches
• Exhibition reading rails, vitrines, and lighting
• Professionally designed site and Great Stone Dwelling maps
• Enhanced security features to protect people and collections
• New design of the Museum’s orientation room

Our wonderful visitors to this National Historic Site deserve no less!


About Enfield Shaker Museum

Discover a National Treasure in Your Own Backyard!

Nestled in a valley between Mt. Assurance and Mascoma Lake, in Enfield, New Hampshire, the Enfield Shaker community 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. The Enfield Shakers farmed over 3,000 acres of land, educated children in model schools, and worshiped in the “Shaker Way.”

Today, their story is preserved by Enfield Shaker Museum.

The mission of the Enfield Shaker Museum, an educational institution, is to preserve and share its historical structures, landscape, and Shaker cultural heritage with our multi-generational visitors, members, and the global community.
