Canterbury, NH - Shaker Village Residence Interior

Part of a residence at Canterbury Shaker Village
, a historic site and museum in Canterbury, New Hampshire under permanent conservation easement at one of a number of Shaker community sites founded in the 19th century. The United Society of Believers in Christ's Second Appearing, more commonly known as the Shakers, is a Christian sect founded in the 18th century in England. Their celibacy combined with external and internal societal changes resulted in the thinning of the Shaker community, and consequently many of the Shaker settlements became village museums.
