NEW GLOUCESTER — The Sabbathday Lake Shaker Museum recently received a $5,000 grant from the Maine Community Foundation to develop an exhibit, catalog and programs titled “Creating Chosen Land: The Architectural History of Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village.”

The exhibit will be open to the public for both the 2010 and 2011 seasons.

“The exhibit will be the first comprehensive look at a single Shaker Village’s built environment,” said Leonard L. Brooks, director of the Shaker Museum, established in 1931.

“Shaker Village has been part of Maine life for over 225 years and continues as an active community today – a unique distinction for this national historic landmark,” he added.
