Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village

Located in New Gloucester, the 1,700-acre Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village has long been open to visitors who come to tour its historic buildings and learn about traditional Shaker crafts, or to picnic, hike, or cross-country ski in the surrounding forests. In 2007, the Land for Maine’s Future Board supported the acquisition of a conservation easement to protect the village, while allowing for sustainable farming, forestry and low impact recreation.
