Question:  Can you refer me to a good book on the Shakers of Alfred, Maine?


Answer:  At NEHGS we have a book by Harland H. Eastman, Alfred, Maine - The Shakers and The Village. (Sanford, ME., 1986).  This can be used to learn about the Shaker community which started in Alfred in 1793. The book is richly illustrated, and has maps of the settlement. The NEHGS Call # is BX/9768/A6/E3/1986.
