Mount Lebanon Shaker Society, also known as New Lebanon Shaker Society, was a communal settlement of Shakers in New Lebanon. Its main building became a National Historic Landmark in 1965.[2],[3]

Although the first Shakers settlement in the U.S. was the Watervliet Shaker Historic District, Mount Lebanon became the principal settlement, and was the first to have a building used exclusively for religious purposes.

It is located where Shaker Rd merges with Darrow Rd off US 20 in New Lebanon, New York.
