In the 19th century, there were two attempts to create Utopian communities in this southern Indiana town. Robert Owen, the owner of the land around New Harmony, decided he wanted to abolish personal wealth and social classes through free education. Although the community envisioned by Owen doesn’t exist anymore, its legacy has left many unique marks on the town. There are numerous historic buildings from the 19th century including an opera house, a roofless church, and Harmonist cabins. The most popular attraction is the New Harmony Labyrinth.
