Sears was a preservationist, historian, and writer. This book is a result of her intimate knowledge of the Shaker community.
When the Shaker community closed in 1917, Sears brought the eighteenth-century Shaker office to Fruitlands, furnished it with Shaker artwork, implements, and artifacts, many donated by the Shakers themselves.
