Mount Lebanon Shaker Society, also known as Old Lebanon Shaker Society, was a communal settlement of Shakers in New Lebanon, New York. The early Shaker Ministry, including Joseph Meacham and Lucy Wright, the architects of Shakers' gender-balanced government, lived there. Isaac N. Youngs, the society's scribe, chronicled the life of that Shaker village for almost half a century. Youngs also designed the schoolhouse built there in 1839. In the 1940s, due to declining membership, the Shakers sold the site to Darrow School. Throughout the subsequent years, the site has been managed by several different owners. Darrow owns what remains of the Church and Center Families, while Shaker Museum Mount Lebanon manages preservation and operates tours of the North Family; the rest of the buildings of remaining Families are privately owned. Holy Mount, where Shaker services were held, has a spur ridge which has been called Mount Lebanon.
