Copyright, 1954. By Christiana F. Knoedler 160 pages. HB.
The Harmony Society was founded near Pittsburgh, Pennyslvania, in 1805, by George Rapp and a group of German pietists; it was dissolved in 1905, exactly 100 years later. Of the more than two hundred experiments in communal living established in the United States during the nineteenth century, it survived the longest.

Christiana F. Knoedler has here put down the facts of the Society's century of existence, delightfully interwoven with reminiscences of her own and of others. Few who actually lived in the community are now left, and Old Economy, as the village was known in its last phase, has become Ambridge. The Harmony Society buildings are now Old Economy Village.
