Traces the history and significance of New Harmony, Indiana, from its communal origins to its contemporary renaissance as an historic landmark. Explains that when the Harmonists moved from Indiana to Pennsylvania, Robert Owen purchased their holdings and recruited many educators in an effort to create a new social movement emphasizing intellectual freedom. Observes that even though his experiment did not meet his expectations, many of his group remained in New Harmony making valuable contributions to the Midwest and the nation.
