I have shaker-style boxes from Frye's Measure Mill that I treasure. Whenever I have guests from out of town, I always bring them here to get a bit of experience of old New Hampshire history.

I love how much history is right around every corner! This was such a cool place to explore, and learn a bit of history I didnt even know about! Everyone was super friendly, and we just wanted to buy everything in there!

A mill we just happened to encounter. Full of history, as well as many antiques. Questions were encouraged and descriptions were made easy to understand. They continue to make Shaker boxes .

We had no idea what a "measuring mill" was but we're glad that we now do. The boxes are handmade in three sytles with various hand paintings and different finishes. The mill has many other items from the past that are unique and well presented....More
