This Tiny, Isolated Maine Village Is One Of The Last Of Its Kind

Maine is full of history and one of our favorite things is uncovering the smaller, lesser known bits of state stories that people often overlook. Of course, there are the stories we all grow up hearing – about ship building, potatoes and lumber. But, there’s more to Maine than just that. This Shaker village in Maine is a great example of some of the beautiful history that exists here in Vacationland.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
