Other visitors were not as impressed: "hard labor & coarse fare appears to be the lot of all except the family of Rapp, he lives in a large & handsome brick house while the rest inhabit small log cabins.
How so numerous a population are kept quietly & tamely in absolute servitude it is hard to conceive—the women I believe do more labor in the field than the men, as large numbers of the latter are engaged in different branches of manufactures." Although they were not paid for their work, the 1820 manufacturer's census reported that 75 men, 12 women, and 30 children were employed, in the Society's tanneries, saw and grain mills, and woolen and cotton mills.
Robert Owen, a Welsh industrialist and social reformer, purchased the town in 1825 with the intention of creating a new utopian community and renamed it New Harmony.
While the Owenite social experiment was an economic failure two years after it began, the community made some important contributions to American society.
On March 20, 1819, Rapp commented, "It is astonishing how much trouble the people who have arrived here have made, for they have no morals and do not know what it means to live a moral and well-mannered life, not to speak of true Christianity, of denying the world or yourself." Visitors to Harmony commented on the commercial and industrial work being done in this religious settlement along the Wabash River.
"It seemed as though I found myself in the midst of Germany," noted one visitor.
Under the preliminary constitution, members would provide their own household goods and invest their capital at interest in an enterprise that would promote independence and social equality.
Members would render services to the community in exchange for credit at the town's store, but those who did not want to work could purchase credit at the store with cash payments made in advance.
Owen believed his utopian community would create a "superior social, intellectual and physical environment" based on his ideals of social reform.In May 1815 the last of the Harmonists who had remained behind until the sale of their town in Pennsylvania was completed departed for their new town along the Wabash River.The settlement also began to attract new arrivals, including emigrants from Germany such as members of Rapp's congregation from Wurttemberg, many of whom expected the Harmonists to pay for their passage to America.Jump to: Census 2010 | 2000 | 1990 | Historic | Special Censuses Indiana's demographic profiles – which provide detail on age, race, Hispanic origin, sex and housing status were released on May 26, 2011. total population; 18 and older; under age 18; white, black, Asian, other, and multi-race; Hispanic; white, non-Hispanic; a minority tabulation; total count of housing units, as well as the number that were occupied and the number vacant.
