In 1824, George Rapp established his third community in America and called it Economy. Founding a new village created a crisis for many members of the Harmony Society who resented giving up the community at New Harmony, Indiana. Nevertheless, George Rapp convinced them to follow him back to Pennsylvania.

The Protestant Reformation was a split from the Roman Catholic Church, most commonly marked by Martin Luther’s posting of The Ninety-Five Theses on the Power and Efficacy of Indulgences to the Archbishop of Mainz on October 31, 1517 and ending after the Thirty Years War in 1648.
We are pleased to announce our second annual Trick or Treat event here in the Village. Costumed children ages 10 and under will go “door-to-door” on the historic site and trick or treat. Costumed interpreters and guides will greet visitors as they make their way around the site. In addition there will be other activities and refreshments for everyone.
If you’ve been to the Easter Egg hunt and enjoyed it, come out and see us for this Fall family event. If you’ve never been out to see us this is a great time for your first visit.
Stay tuned for registration information.
