This panorama shows most of the buildings at the Church Family, Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village.

From left to right are the Mill complex, School House, Carriage Shed, Ministry's Shop, Dwelling House, Meeting House, Garden seed House, Cow Barn, Brethren's Shop, Spin House, Trustees' Office, Ox and Horse Barns and Hired Men's House. Obscured are the Girls'Shop, Sisters' Shop and Herb House.

Other landmarks of note are the community's orchard and vegetable garden and in the background, Sabbathday Lake.

This view is a composite of two photographs and was probably also taken with a panoramic camera which accounts for the odd perspective.
