Summary, etc.:
From a near ruin to a dazzling jewel, the program documents the granary's transformation and, in the process, shares some of New Harmony's unique history. The storehouse embodies the faith, work ethic, and communal lifestyle of the Harmonists who founded the town and built the granary around 1814. Completed by the German Rappites in 1818, the granary later became a laboratory for David Dale Owen, the geologist who first surveyed much of the Midwest's natural resources.
