Earlier this year I was in Maine on a special project. I shared snippets about it, but never really got into great detail.
The Shakers are a misunderstood religious group that have dwindled down to a few. People sometimes confuse them with the Amish, but there is no connection at all between the two.
I teamed up with Al-Jazeera America to visit Sabbathday Lake, Maine, home to the last surviving Shakers, and this is the story I wrote. Enjoy!
