About Enfield, New Hampshire

Lying on the western bank of Lake Mascoma, the Shaker community of Enfield was established in 1793. While the society was founded in the late 18th century, many of its significant buildings were not constructed until the mid-19th century. These buildings have been heralded for their sophistication and the dynamic use of stone masonry techniques, specifically the use of granite, previously not found in early 19th-century New England architecture.

Today, Enfield is a town in Grafton County, New Hampshire with a population of about 4,600. The town includes the villages of Enfield, Enfield Center, Upper Shaker Village, Lower Shaker Village, Lockehaven, and Montcalm.
