A perfect history

The town of New Harmony was founded by the Harmony Society in 1814. The Harmonists, led by George Rapp, were religious Separatists from Germany who pursued Christian perfection through every aspect of their daily conduct.
They sold New Harmony to Robert Owen in 1825, and he, along with his business partner William Maclure, hoped to establish a model community where education and social equality would flourish.

Owen’s “Community of Equality” dissolved by 1827. Nevertheless, his utopian dream brought significant contributions to American scientific and educational theory, study and practice. Early feminist activity increased national awareness of the women’s suffrage issue.
Today, New Harmony is a vibrant community where festivals, concerts and plays are held throughout the year. The town is also a popular location for weddings, conferences and retreats. From the external buildings to the interior history, you and your guests are sure to create new memories in this historic venue.
