The Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village is a historic place, declared as a National Historic Landmark in 1974. It has been a settlement of members of the Quaker movement when they moved to the US in the 1700s to have religious freedom. This Shaker Village is one of the 19 original settlements built, and is the last active community of the lot.

Believed to be established in the late 1700s, the Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village is composed of 1643 acres of land. It has fourteen working buildings as of 2006, and has been open to the public since 1931, as soon as the Shaker Museum and Library was founded.

Today, the Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village is one of the last places people can see the rich history of the said religious movement.
