Interiors. Dwelling House Dining Room, Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village, CA 1905. Like most Shaker activities, dining was an orderly affair. Brothers and Sisters ate at separate tables. The low-back chairs were designed to slide underneath the dining tables after meals for added space. Settings of four, so that each member of the square had access to serving dishes, made possible the eating of meals in silence. Shaker cooking was distinguished by its simplicity and wholesomeness.

Furniture. A Shaker-made child's rocking chair, ca. 1875
