This one of my favorite photos. The simplicity of the lines and the lighting from above highlight the skills of the builders. This elegant spiral staircase is one of two in the Trustee’s House (1839) built by the Shakers in Shaker Village of Pleasent Hill. The two staircases stand mirroring each other ascending three stories from the building’s main hallway and are quite striking with patterns and play of light.
