Historic New Harmony invites schoolchildren to New Harmony, Indiana virtually to experience what life was like in the 1800s through the eyes of a variety of period artisans. This year we welcome back artisans who specialize in paper marbling, broom making and blacksmithing, to name just a few. During the week of April 12-16, we will bring you a new artisan each day to demonstrate their craft and talk about life in the 1800s via Zoom, free of charge. We will have three identical demonstrations each day, 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. so, you can pick the time that is most convenient for your class schedule.


9:00am, 11:00am and 1:00pm: Tony Gerard - Fur Trader

Fur Trader: Tony Gerard displays the lucrative fur trade of the early 1800s through his many furs and hides. He shows what it was like living in the wilderness and the interactions between European Americans and Native Americans.
