Abstract

"North by East" piece on the Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village in New Gloucester, where property taxes, which the four remaining Shakers pay on principle, have risen to $27,000 annually. The Shakers are trying to raise $3,695,000 to fund an endowment and to finance conservation and building preservation easements for their 18 historic buildings and 1,800 acres, and are working with the New England Forestry Foundation, Friends of the Royal River, and Maine Preservation to create and maintain the easements. They have raised about $2 million, including $1.11 million from the Land for Maine's Future program.
