In 1891 Elder Henry Blinn noted that the cellar was the best storage place at the village for winter apples and sauces. The elders occupied the western half of the first story, while the large east room was used for instruction in musical instruments. The sisters used the northwest room on the second story for making dresses, and the other rooms were general workrooms. The eldresses' confession room was located here, where sisters made their weekly confession.
Today the Sisters’ Shop is open for self-guided tours.
how come, you have a untitled photo, it is not like you
Thanks pap, I fixed it.
And what in this shop was on sale? Now it is a museum?
The Shaker village is now a exhibition of sorts, there to make a profit for those who run it. In the early 1800's the settlement was a thriving industrial religious community.
