In a contrast between the very old and the ultramodern, New Harmony’s Atheneum stands out as an architectural marvel. The Atheneum is the visitor center for New Harmony, Indiana and is named for the Greek Athenaion, which was a temple dedicated to Athena in ancient Greece.

Even the old split rail fence contrasts the old and new. New Harmony can be found on the Wabash River , near Evansville, Indiana.
