Most People Have No Idea Just How Unique This Village In Maine Truly Is

Maine is full of history – from lighthouses to battles to beautiful bed and breakfasts, it sometimes seems as if there’s something new to learn around every corner. The truth is…that’s exactly correct! And today, we’d like to tell you a little bit about the only active Shaker village in the world. It exists right here in Maine! Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village is an active community, but currently has just two living members.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
You can visit them at 707 Shaker Road in New Gloucester. For more information about the history of the Sabbathday Shakers and how to visit, you can find them online by clicking here. Or, simply give the at call at (207) 926-4597.
