Indiana's attempt at utopia: New Harmony

By Ernest Disney-Britton

Join Alpha Omega Arts this month, as we escape the clamor of city life for the peace of a weekend in Utopia. Join us, August 21-23, for a weekend retreat in New Harmony, Indiana (pop. 766). It’s a remote town established in 1814 by a group of Christians who broke with the larger world to build their version of heaven. "They say the veil between heaven and earth is very thin here," Linda Warrum, a Town Council member told The Chicago Tribune. "You can't see it and you can't touch it, but you can feel it.” [link]
