New New Harmonists





On the way back from St Louis we stopped in New Harmony Indiana on the banks of the Wabash River. It was a Sunday so most shops were closed up but that may have been for the best. The roofless church was an interesting part of the visit. Would love to create something like that out at Bernheim. The town had an odd feel. Everything felt like it was just shy of wonderful. Great ideas that nearly came together perfectly. From what I can tell that might be the history of the New Harmonist communal experiment. Nearly came together. Toot loved playing in the fountain near the labyrinth.

I love visiting New Harmony. Who would have thought that this was one of the most progressive places to live in the early 19th century? I always visit the Working Man's Institute and see something new there everytime. Makes me wistful that those "Boatfull of Knowledge" days are over.. Al
