It's been about 15 years since I last visited. The first time, there were children running all over the place. The next time, we went at night for a elegant home cooked dinner, reservations only for this special event. Being a fussy eater, I still remember eating my first broccoli and cheese soup and a pork dish, everything made with items from the garden and their raised pigs. Unfortunately, they no longer do this.
Earlier today, I posted The Shakers of Canterbury, NH, In Sickness and in Death, there is more information and photos at that site.
I'm sharing some pictures of Sunday's wonderful quiet day.
The Meeting House, a place of worship.
Meeting House, side view and the interior.
The Shakers are well-known for building storage units, such as cabinets and drawers into the walls.
They made their own clothes, see the sewing machine?
Syrup Shop, (above and below)
They made syrup, did canning and packed seeds to sell.
Brooms were made here, and the printing press was in this room.
