<strong>Canterbury Shaker Village:</strong> Our Canterbury Story Tour introduces us to the history, culture and innovations of the Canterbury Shakers. The Shakers’ worship, work and daily life are discussed on this guided tour through the Laundry and Dwelling House.
Canterbury Shaker Village is a National Historic Landmark and museum nestled among the rolling hills of wooded central New Hampshire. With nearly 700 acres of forests, open fields bordered by stone walls, well-tended gardens and picturesque mill ponds, as well as a distinctive campus of 25 original and 4 reconstructed Shaker buildings, Canterbury Shaker Village is a must-see. Experience the full Shaker story on our guided tour. Canterbury Shaker Village was established in 1792 when followers of founder Mother Ann Lee formed their seventh community in Canterbury, NH, which remained prominent for 200 years. The Village has operated exclusively as a museum since 1992 when the last Shaker sister in residence, Ethel Hudson, died. The few remaining Shakers live at the Shaker Village in Sabbathday Lake, Maine. At its height in the 1850s, 300 people lived and worked in over 100 buildings on 3,000 acres at Canterbury Shaker Village.
