Going for a Surrey Ride, Alfred Shaker Village, ca. 1918

Contributed by United Society of Shakers

This photograph was probably taken soon after the Second family at Alfred closed in April of 1918.

Eldress Harriett Coolbroth (1864-1953), patting Old Dan, Brother Stephen Gowen, driving the surrey, and thirteen Sisters moved to the Church Family at that time.

In 1931 the Church family itself closed and 21 Alfred Shakers moved to the community at Sabbathday Lake.

The photo was taken in front of Third Dwelling House, Alfred.
