A Very Brief History of Harmony
Harmony, PA was home to the Harmonities Society – which was founded in 1804 by Father Rapp. The Harmonites were in Harmony for about 10 years, then they moved to Indiana and eventually setted in what is now Ambridge. There isn’t much more to the story of the HArmonities – they were a celebate group so that eventually put an end to their group. But the town exists with lots of well preserved buildings. We have included some links to places to visit below.
