What is your idea of Utopia?

Well, we thought we would make a diversionary field trip on the way
home from St. Loulis.......

So we stopped at this town in Indiana where there have been
not ONE but TWO Utopian communities.

And right away...I knew that it was a UTOPIAN place for a roach
on the grass on a beautiful day in early summer.

And then  me and Teka stopped to talk to these folks, and
we decided the members of Utopian Communities must be a bit
stiff and slightly wooden.
But we did see lots of great houses
(And you know how the muzzer is about houses, right?)
And this one...which had a "for sale" sign.
And this place, which is not a house, but a place
called the Atheneum  and is most interesting in a
town full of early and mid 19th century houses.

And a main street trying hard for a revival.

And all around a great place to walk and walk and walk.

We enjoyed our overnight at the New Harmony Inn.

Muzzer and the dad had dinner at a place called The Red Geranium
which they recommend highly.

Me and Teka did not get a T-shirt.

Thanks to Lyman Tower Sargeant for teaching Mom and Dad
to love and appreciate Utopian Communities!

How interesting. Nice to see something with a bit of character. Loved those "a bit stiff and wooden" characters. I bet if anything could make them come to life, it would be two terriers!

Wirey love,

Thanks for the share. Such an interesting place to visit. We wish we had a place around us like this. Love seeing towns like this with the old style main street look. Hope you had a great time. Have a wonderful day.
