Enfield Shaker Museum renovations underway

The 55-ton building, built in 1820 as a workshop to make small farm implements, was lowered earlier in the day onto a new foundation as part of an extensive restoration. The goal, said Tim Baker, of Great Northern Barns, who is working on the project, is to restore it to how it was built by the Shakers, and now the shop will get a new roog, siding, and chimneys.
