Enfield, N. H.

Grafton co. Enfield comprises
24,060 acres, of which about 2,500
acres are water. It is 10 miles S.
E. from Dartmouth College and 40
N. W. from Concord. Its surface
is diversified with hills and valleys,
and watered by a variety of ponds
and streams, stored with fish of ev-
ery species common to the country.
Mascomy pond, which has acquir-
ed from travellers the appellation
of Pleasant pond, is a beautiful col-
lection of water, 4 miles in length
and of various breadth, interspersed
with islands and checkered with
inlets. Its eastern banks are cov-
ered with frees; the hills gradually
rise one above another for some dis-
tance. Along the western bank,
between the pond and Mont Calm,
within a few rods of the water, ex-
tends the turnpike road, the whole
distance through a beautiful vil-
lage, shaded to the N. on either
side by a growth of trees. Masco-
my river empties into this pond in
the N. W. part. This pond is sup-
posed to have once been much high-
er than it now is, and the plain and
villages to the south are supposed ,
to have been the bed of it. This
fact is sufficiently evident from the
ancient shore still remaining round
the pond, about 30 feet above high
water, and from logs having been
frequently found 12 feet below the
surface of the plain once flowed.
On the W. bank, near the southern
extremity, is the Shakers’ settle-
ment, situated on a fertile plain.—
The structure of the buildings, tho’
not lofty, are neat and convenient.
They occupy about 1,000 acres of
land, and their number consists of
about 240. They are agricultural-
ists and mechanics. Garden seeds
are grown, and wooden ware,whips,
corn brooms, leather, and various
other articles, are manufactured hy
them with peculiar neatness. See

Mont Calm, is 200 rods long, and
100 wide. At the outlets of the
ponds are mills of various kinds.
The town was formerly called
and was incorporated by char-
ter, granted to Jedediah Dana and
