CRITTERS IN NEW HARMONY INDIANA

Here in New Harmony, Indiana, we live in a bucolic rural setting, and we are close to nature. On a regular basis, I rub elbows with raccoons, opossums, rabbits, squirrels, a huge variety of song birds, assorted snakes and lizards, many species of frogs, toads and turtles, foxes, wild turkeys and deer, hawks, vultures, eagles, cranes and ducks and geese.

Boat Load of Knowledge to New Harmony

Boat Load of Knowledge to New Harmony

In the winter of 1825-1826 Robert Owen and Robert McClure brought a large keel boat loaded with scientists, teachers, philosophers, writers and other learned people from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to New Harmony, Indiana.

It was arguably the largest gathering of learned people to ever assemble on a single boat.

Philadelphia’s loss was New Harmony’s gain,  and neither city has ever been the same, since.

Robert Owen called it the BOAT LOAD OF KNOWLEDGE.
