New Harmony, Indiana - A photo essay!

While on vacation in Indiana, over Christmas, we visited the historic town of New Harmony. This was one of the highlights of my vacation. It was nice to meet our friends in New Harmony and make some new friends. I had a blast!

New Harmony is a great town with a lot of history and lots of great people. There is so much more to New Harmony than I can tell you. You can read about New Harmony here

Below is an assortment of photos from New Harmony. The captions tell it all, for the most part :)

This was my first stop in New Harmony - The Yellow Cafe and Bar. Very laid back, I loved it!
Next stop, the Coffee Shop! 
I didn't buy any coffee here, but we had a great conversation with the owner.
Sometimes, I need a large cup of coffee :)

Inside the Gallery, an interesting piece of art!

The Roofless Church was designed by Phillip Johnson, who was also the architect for the Water Garden in Ft. Worth.

Finally, the famous Roofless! So, calming!
