This is a small Shaker museum, smaller than others such as Pleasant Hill (KY) and Hancock Shaker Village (MA). Its centerpiece is the Great Stone Dwelling, built around 1840 for the Shakers and the largest dwelling house they ever built. The tour was very informative about the lives of the Enfield Shaker community. There are a few other buildings on site that you can walk through or around - the Brethren's workshop, the dairy/laundry, the 1854 barn, an old stone mill. Also a beautiful decommissioned church built around 1930 when the Catholic church owned the property. We were there for a needlework retreat, so stayed there for four days (the Great Stone Dwelling is available for groups as lodging). Rooms were clean and spacious, although some bathrooms are a bit cramped. It was very peaceful to stay there. Would be an excellent venue for a family reunion or wedding (I believe there are 28 guestrooms).
