Zion's Center of Union, Sabbathday Lake is God's Chosen place. Only the wise and discerning eye can comprehend the hidden Eternal Glory within these 1800 acres. Take God out and its still a plausible effort at communal living. A must see experience and a good fair ticket price to learn some American history if you don't value the God factor. However, if you are a true and discerning Christian, you will meet your Maker here...in peace. Enjoy your tour.
Tis a gift to be simple
Totally not worth $7.00, I couldn't take the walking tour (7.00) as it was another 40 minutes before it started. I opted for the museum. It was one room divided up. Had VERY few artifacts and some pictures. Took me less 10 minutes (and only that because I read EVERY paragraph by EVERY photo). Store is uninteresting. Without the walking tour not allowed to even walk down the street. Don't know about the walking tour but the museum was NOT worth the money OR the drive.
I love outside museum history
Words cannot describe the peace and beauty of Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village. The tours give an in-depth look into the Shaker faith.
