Bicycles and Nature Path
The barn on the grounds has been a true labor of love. Upon purchasing the property, we learned that the structure had been relocated to Plank Road from another farm in Posey County in 1929. At that time it was re-shingled and used primarily for horses. We were advised by several well-meaning contractors to pull it down and start over, but the history called to us! Miraculously, the internal 150 year+ framework was intact. The re-shingled barn has been given a minor facelift and is a lovely place for meditation and reflection. Guests are welcome to spend time reading in the loft or watching birds from the lookout window. The barn space is also available for small gatherings and meetings (50 person capacity). Event packages are available upon request. Contact hosts for reservations and details.
*The Jolly Trolley is available by reservation only. Our vintage snow cone trolley is mobile and can be rented for birthdays, wedding celebrations, and family events. The trolley can be rented by the hour and serves up to 600 snow cones per onboard load of snow. Contact us for details and pricing.
THINGS TO DO
Built by architect Richard Meier, and maintained by the University of Southern Indiana, the Atheneum operates as the visitor center for Historic New Harmony. Four galleries and an auditorium provide a detailed explanation of New Harmony's unique origins. The formal tour of significant buildings and structures begins in the foyer of the museum.
Working Men's Institute
A public library, museum, and archive founded in 1838 by William Maclure, the institute's mission was to educate those who "work with their hands."
Built, in 1960, this interdenominational church is located in an open park surrounded by a stately wall. The roof-like structure within contains a sculpture by artist Jacques Lipchitz, The Descent of the Holy Spirit.
Reconstructed to replicate the original Harmonist Labyrinth designed by the Rappites in 1814, this concentric circular privet hedge is a must-see. Its original purpose was to provide a refuge for spiritual reflection. The Labyrinth's unique design and tranquil surroundings provide a memorable experience for all who visit.
Harmonie State Park
Established in 1966, Harmonie State Park is located 3 miles from Sophie Grace's Bed and Breakfast, on the banks of the Wabash River. The park offers scenic hiking and biking trails, fishing, swimming, and picnic areas.
A stroll down Main and Church Street provides entertainment in the form of small shops and antique dealers. Several local eateries, including a coffee house, are quaint stops that should be included on the agenda for a perfect afternoon.
