New Harmony
In 1852 Elisha H. Groves, John D. Lee and others
built a fort on Ash Creek, called Harmony. The
fort was abandoned in 1854 and a new site located
called Fort Harmony. Following disastrous floods
in 1862 settlers again moved and established New
Harmony where the first log school house was
built in 1863. Through community effort a frame
structure was erected. For nearly a century
the bell atop this building called citizens to
church, school and all other public gatherings.
Wilson D. Pace served as first Bishop.
