Enfield Shaker Museum Mission
The mission of the Enfield Shaker Museum, a not-for-profit educational institution, is to foster public knowledge and understanding of the cultural, religious, and economic history of New England by interpreting the complex and multi-faceted site settled by the Enfield Shakers. The Museum collects, preserves, and interprets the buildings, material culture, and landscapes produced and used both by the Shakers and by the Missionaries of La Salette. Through collections, research facilities, exhibits, and public programs, the Museum promotes discussion of the great existential questions of human life including community, spirituality, creativity, and economic activity.
