Day 58 Clinton, IL to New Harmony, IN
Share
clear

We got to New Harmony around 3:00PM after a long drive through “corn canyons” (see photo). This year is predicted to be the 2nd best corn harvest ever.

I was able to get a hair cut in a barber shop little changed from the 50s. The chairs were from the 50s with fins on each side. The price was right at $8.00.

Dinner was with boating friends Ed and Cindy at the Red Germanium Restaurant. This is a very friendly, very classy, very good restaurant that has operated for many years. It and the New Harmony Inn are owned privately by descendants of the Robert Owen family. Owen bought the entire town from the Harmonists in the early 1800’s. Owen was a great believer in education for all and brought many highly educated people to live there. The strategy has continued to this day.

We camped at the Harmonie State Park, one of the finest state parks we have seen.
