Caption: Shaker religious settlement, USA. Diagram of the south part of a village founded by the Shaker religious sect in Canterbury, New Hampshire, USA. The buildings are numbered and identified by function in the legend at right. Examples include the meeting house, workshops, schools, hospital, granary, barns, stables, blacksmith's forge, and an aqueduct (crooked line). The Shakers, religious dissenters, arrived in New York from England in 1774. They established more than twenty communities similar to this one, aiming to create settlements set apart from what they perceived as the chaos and disorder of American life. Drawn by Peter Foster in 1849.
