 and moved to Economy, Pa., where their sect survived into the early 1900s. Owen established a communistic colony in New Harmony that gained prominence as a cultural and scientific center and attracted many noted scientists, educators, and writers. Dissension arose, and in 1828 the community ceased to exist as a distinct enterprise, although the town remained an intellectual center. The nation's first kindergarten, first free public school, first free library, and first school with equal education for boys and girls were all established there. Some 25 Rappite buildings remain in New Harmony.

New Harmony

 

a community established in Indiana, USA, in 1825 by the English Utopian socialist Robert Owen, according to whose plan it was to become a “communistic colony.” The experiment, which was based on the Utopian idea of the peaceful evolutionary transformation of capitalistic society, was a failure. The community dissolved in 1828. Other Owenistic communes, which had sprung up in 1826–27 in New York, Ohio, and Indiana, also ceased to exist.
