In December, Canterbury Shaker Village received a $109,755 matching grant from the New Hampshire Land and Community Heritage Investment Program (LCHIP) to fund a new roof, at its Dwelling House. One of 26 restored original Shaker buildings at the Village, a National Historic Landmark, the Dwelling House is a T-shaped structure with 56 rooms that has been expanded numerous times since its construction in 1793.
