Built according to specifications set by the leaders of the New Harmony community, this was one of the many houses and buildings constructed by the followers of the German religious leader, George Rapp.

Early pioneer period in style, the house exemplifies the simple tastes of the Harmonists and contains many original pieces of Harmonist furniture.

The garden has been planted and a picket fence built, both in the traditional manner of the Harmonists.

The house is owned and furnished by The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America in the State of Indiana. It is leased to Historic New Harmony.
