Shaker Museum information
Lonely Planet review
The nation's only active Shaker community is at Sabbathday Lake, 25 miles north of Portland. Founded in the early 18th century, a handful of devotees keep the Shaker tradition of simple living, hard work and fine artistry alive. You can tour several of their buildings on a visit to the Shaker Museum . To get there, take exit 63 off the Maine Turnpike and continue north for 8 miles on ME 26.
