About this collection

This collection of early New Harmony record books is from the Branigin Archive of the Working Men's Institute.  The Branigin Archive houses manuscripts from the Harmonist and Owen communal societies established at New Harmony, 1814-1827. It also contains items from the close of the Owen community in 1827 up to the present day including materials from the “after-glow” period when New Harmony was known as the “Athens on the Wabash” (1827-1900).

 

The Working Men’s Institute still bridges the information gap by providing library services including public access computers to all of the people of Posey County. With the growth of our museum, and archives that house rare books, manuscripts and artifacts from New Harmony’s unique past we embrace the mission of safeguarding our unique holdings while making them accessible to increase public awareness and knowledge of the New Harmony experience.
