Places such as rivers, valleys, wetlands – and the plants and animals that inhabit them – inspire us by their very nature. Others, such as buildings, interior spaces and art, are designed by humankind to inspire. In Posey County, you’ll find plenty of inspiration that comes from many different places.
New Harmony, in particular, has been a place of great inspiration since the early 1800’s.
From the original Harmonists to the Owen experiment through the Jane Owen years, and continuing to the present day; New Harmony residents have been inspired to build unique structures, surround them with art and natural beauty, and fill them with fascinating items from modern paintings to antiques to natural history specimens.
And New Harmony is a place of spiritual inspiration a well. Much of the art and architecture is designed to appeal to humankind’s spiritual nature and offer a path to its deepening.
