Come See the Harmony Museum
Enter the Sophia doorway of the 1809 Harmony Museum to learn about the town’s unique history and heritage that led to National Historic Landmark District designation. From its beginning in 1804 as a religious refuge, Harmony attracted international attention for its residents’ communal living, mysticism and work ethic. George Washington visited a half-century earlier and was greeted with gunfire near a village he called Murderingtown. Take a tour and hear the Harmony stories of Native Americans who blazed the first area trails, the shot that narrowly missed Washington and marked the start of the French and Indian War, German immigrants who settled here and organized as the Harmony Society to prepare for Christ’s return, Mennonites who added their customs and large families to the community.
