Historic New Harmony will hold a reception at 2 p.m. on Thursday, October 13 in USI′s Traditions Lounge in University Center East for Jane Masters, heritage manager, and Anysley Gough, education and access officer, from New Lanark World Heritage Site in New Lanark, Scotland. Masters and Gough will present an overview of the New Lanark World Heritage Site. USI faculty and staff are invited to attend.

The thought and life of Robert Owen, founder of the second Utopian experiment in New Harmony, Indiana, connect the towns of New Harmony and New Lanark, which both work to celebrate, share, and maintain the historical significance of their communities. While visiting, Masters and Gough will tour USI′s campus and meet with University faculty and staff.

Last summer, USI′s President Linda L. M. Bennett, Mark Rozewski, vice president for Finance and Administration, and Connie Weinzapfel, director of Historic New Harmony, traveled to New Lanark to explore the connections and possibilities for collaborations between the two communities.

A public reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, October 13 at the Historic New Harmony administrative office located at 603 West Street in New Harmony, Indiana.

For more information, contact Christine Crews, administrative associate in Historic New Harmony, at 812/682-4488.

Historic New Harmony is a unified program of the University for Southern Indiana and the Indian State Museum and Historic Sites. By preserving its utopian legacy, Historic New Harmony will inspire renewal and fellowship between people and communities through its programs and collections. Its office is part of USI′s Division of Outreach and Engagement.
