Pre-Program Internship at Canterbury Shaker Village

Canterbury Shaker Village, a National Historic Landmark located in
central New Hampshire, is seeking a pre-program intern beginning
between June and August, 1999.  The intern will work under the
direction of the Chief Curator, a contract conservator and a
nationally-known consulting decorative arts conservator.  The
projects will involve a diversity of conservation opportunities,
including treatment of wooden objects, treatment of original 18th
and early 19th century painted finishes, treatment of historic
linoleum, treatment of original 18th and 19th century plaster, and
storage reorganization.  The internship will provide an excellent
opportunity to gain collections care experience within a real-world
historic site museum, as well as to be involved with nationally
significant cultural artifacts.

Canterbury Shaker Village consists of twenty-five original historic
buildings, dating from 1792-1939, situated on a rolling hilltop
surrounded by 694 acres of fields, woodlots and ponds.  The Village
provides an ideal location that is only minutes away from lakes and
trails, and only an hour from the White Mountains and from the sites
and entertainment of Portsmouth, NH.

Applicants should be energetic, well-organized, and possess
excellent dexterity, attention to detail and good judgement.
Training or experience with collections conservation, architectural
conservation and/or storage reorganization is preferred but not
required.  Please immediately send a letter of interest, along with
a copy of your resume, and three references to:

    Chief Curator
    Canterbury Shaker Village
    288 Shaker Road
    Canterbury, NH 03224
