The Town of New Lebanon is in the north of Columbia County, with the Town of Chatham to the west, Rensselaer County to the north, Massachusetts to the east and the Town of Canaan to the south. With close ties to Stephentown in Rensselaer County, Jiminy Peak and Pittsfield. Its historical role as the center of Shaker activity and the resort activity in Lebanon Springs is hardly evident today. The Darrow School and the Abode of the Message use the old Shaker facilities.

New Lebanon was formed from the town of Canaan in 1818 and was the main spiritual home of the Shakers. The Mount Lebanon Shaker Society had 609 members in 1864. Most historic structures now belong to the Shaker Museum and Library. Some of the other surviving buildings are home to the Darrow School. Still others have been converted into a Sufi retreat center called the Abode of the Message.
New Lebanon was a popular resort because of its natural springs. Its agricultural activities are now minimal and most residents work in Albany or Pittsfield, both within commuting distance. It is also a destination for second home owners, in part attracted by the proximity of the Jiminy Peak Ski Area.
The Shaker Mount Lebanon’s North Family Dairy Barn is the largest stone barn in the Northeast and the Old Chatham Shaker Museum’s new home.
