This large building is a dormitory where many of the rest of the colony lived. As you can see, there is a double door with separate stairs and walkways for the men and women. Inside the men lived on the right and the women on the left and they reached the second and third floors via separate stairways inside.
Most of the bedrooms were furnished as in the above two pictures.
At its strongest the colony consisted of 350 members who together managed 6,000 acres. It is said that they lived very well for the times until disrupted by the Civil War. Like many others the colony never really recovered and in 1922 the survivors sold the land and walked away. According to the docent there is one remaining sect, 6 strong, in Maine.
