Virtual Museum Spotlight: OLD ECONOMY VILLAGETuesday August 16, 2022

Old Economy Village tells the fascinating story of the Harmony Society, a 19th century religious community. Visitors can tour the Visitor Center and many of the settlement’s buildings such as the George Rapp House, Carriage House, Mechanics Building, Wine Cellar, Store, Post Office, Baker House, Bake Oven, Community Kitchen, Cabinet Shop, Blacksmith Shop, and Granary. In these buildings, visitors can observe artifacts on display and learn about the daily life of the Harmonists.
At this virtual program, a representative from Old Economy Village will highlight the history of the site and what you may see during your visit. Following the presentation, there will be an opportunity to ask questions and learn more!
