    Shaker Village. Beautiful 225 year old buildings located in original religious colony. Won't go into Shaker beliefs and traditions here. You can Google them yourselves. Beautiful country setting, heirloom plants, herb mixes, heritage cookbooks, jams and souvenirs for sale. Tours are $10 for adults. Includes all buildings, museum and Shaker burial ground.

    Fascinating look at a dying community. The history, architecture and basic designs are beautiful. And they invented so many things you take for granted today.

    It was fun to visit on their festival day. I'm not sure what else there is to do here but the crafts and demonstrations made the visit from Portland worthwhile.

    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.
