We took a day trip to New Harmony, Indiana today. I expected the children to be completely bored. Surprisingly, only one was cranky – DramaQueen (go figure).
TIME: 10:56 AM
PLACE: Inside the Lenz House (circa 1819-1822)
SUBJECT: Door and stairway
We took the walking tour and were able to enter into several buildings that are only open to visitors with a guide.
TIME: 12:47 PM
PLACE: Outside the Antheneum
SUBJECT: Split rail fence posts
It took about two hours. StellaDella asked some questions that impressed the tour guide (That’s my girl!) Afterwards, MonkeyBoy even stated that it was “More interesting than I expected”
TIME: 8:40 AM
PLACE: State Route 66
SUBJECT: The now closed New Harmony Toll Bridge
Remember this bridge? I drove across it in November of 2010. It closed on May 21, 2012 due to structural deficiencies. It’s still a cool looking bridge.
