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. They traveled from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, down the Ohio river to the mouth of the Wabash river, and then up the Wabash to New Harmony. 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.

A Sweet Little Pre-Kunstfest Rain

I have a garden here in New Harmony and another garden about four miles North, as the crow flies, (ACF) in Griffin. The small but sweet little rain with which we were blessed this early morning should pretty much insure the success of my late season crop of Shoe Peg Country Gentleman sweet corn in the Griffin garden. I have a water well here in New Harmony for watering, but the second garden in Griffin is dependent on natures watering. The wonderful, rich sandy soil in the Griffin  garden was dry and powdery when I checked it on Sunday morning. I was worried about the sweet corn and some other late season crops, but this sweet little light rain should pull them through. Being a gardener makes one aware of and sensitive to ones natural surroundings, and that is a good thing.

Cotton Patch Gospel in New Harmony, IN

COTTON PATCH GOSPEL

 

One of our family’s favorite things about New Harmony, Indiana is the New Harmony Theatre Company. Each summer during June and July, three plays are performed  by the New Harmony Theatre company at Murphy Auditorium in New Harmony, and Murphy Auditorium is less than a block from our home. Each summer the three plays include one comedy, one drama and one musical. We purchase season tickets each year for some really great seats for the first Sunday matinee of each of the plays.  The first two plays of this year’s theatre season were the comedy Boeing Boeing and and the drama  Fences.

The third and final play of this season is the musical  Cotton Patch Gospel   If you don’t attend the performances of the New Harmony Theatre Company you are missing a splendid cultural event and some darn fine entertainment.
