New Harmony, Indiana is a town in Posey County. This Harmony Township village was established in 1814 by George Rapp, who was the leader of the Harmony Society, and it was initially called Harmony. Welsh industrialist and social reformer Robert Owen bought the town over a decade later and gave it its current name. Owen attempted to transform the town into a utopian community, but due to financial troubles, his endeavor failed two years later. Nevertheless, over 760 people now call New Harmony home.
Even though Robert Owen’s dream of turning New Harmony into a paradise didn’t come to fruition, this small community has much to offer for visitors and locals alike. The village possesses great historical significance with a popular locale being the Working Men’s Institute. This library/museum was constructed in 1838 to close the gap between the poor and the wealthy by providing libraries for average people; it’s still in operation today. This town is also known for its gorgeous green spaces. Harmonie State Park is its largest and most well-known park. Located on the edge of the Wabash River, this beautiful park has trails, a pool, and picnic areas. Feel free to take a stroll around Downtown New Harmony. You can browse art galleries, intriguing trinkets at Firehouse Antiques or get a coffee and a snack at Main Cafe. Schools near New Harmony include two elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school.
