Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village

Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village
The Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village is the only active Shaker community in the country. We offer guided tours of period buildings, exhibits about Shaker life and history, crafts workshops and demos.

The Sabbathday Lake Shaker Museum is located within the perimeters of the only active and functioning Shaker Community in the world. The museum was first organized in 1931 by Sisters Iona Sedgley and Ethel Peacock in hopes of educating the public about the "truths" of Shakerism. Thousands of visitors have come to explore this unique and sacred place of work and worship.

Six of the 18 existing structures at Sabbathday Lake are open to the public. Throughout these buildings there are twenty-seven exhibit rooms which explore a continuum of over 200 years of Shaker heritage in the Maine Communities.

Special events include Maine Festival of American Music, Nature Hikes, Maine Farm Day, Apple Saturdays, Shaker Christmas Fair. Research center. Gift shops. Short drive from Portland via Route 26 or the Maine Turnpike (Exit 63). We are members of the Gems of 26.
