Family Dwelling House, 1841-1846; Enfield, New Hampshire; Moses Johnson. The Dwelling House was the Church familys's primary residence and the greatest architectural achivement of the Enfield Shakers. Its presence was imposing, as seen in this historic photo. The first floor is primarily dedicated to preparing and eating the community's meals. The second floor housed the Meeting Room as well as 4 dwelling rooms. The third and fourth floors contained 8 dwelling rooms per floor.

Furniture. Early to late 19th century. This is the motto that the Shakers lived by as they made their furniture. This is also the work standard that most studio furniture makers live by, especially those furniture makers whose sole income is through their furniture. The Shakers began the tradition of wall mounted furniture by placing pegs along the walls of their rooms in order to hang chairs and other furniture pieces when they are not in use.

Visible in the picture are many oval carriers, which Elder Henry made. His greatest talent, however, was in the area of cabinetry. He made many exquisite secretaries, writing desks and sewing desks, which are still in use today at the Sabbathday Lake community.
