The American Institute of Certified Planners
has designated
New Harmony, Indiana (1814-1827)
as a
National Planning Landmark

George Rapp's New Harmony was surveyed on August 8, 1814. Within ten years, the Harmonists created a center of commerce and religious communal living on the frontier. Social theorist Robert Owen purchased the Town in 1825 and, together with his partner William Maclure, made New Harmony a pioneering American secular communitarian settlement and the model for nine other American Owenite communities established between 1825 and 1843.


 
Erected 1999 by American Institute of Certified Planners, Society for American City and Regional Planning History, and Indiana Planning Association.
