Halloween may be months away, but it's never too early to get your spooky on. One Indiana town is hosting ghost walks every weekend through October.


A Quaint Town with a Lot of History

New Harmony, Indiana is a small town with a lot of history.  New Harmony is a national historic landmark and was first settled over 200 years ago.

Settled in 1814, New Harmony was first a spiritual sanctuary for the Harmonie Society and then a haven for international scientists and scholars led by Robert Owen in 1825.

With a history dating back more than two centuries ago, you know there has to be some interesting history surrounding this town.  Not to mention all of the legends that surround a town that dates back to the early 1800s.
