Harmony – the weekly photo challenge.
I thought a report from Harmony, PA would make an interesting and different post.
Always seeking fresh blog content.
I was already out in my car and drove along the Ohio River without the the GPS. When I put Harmony PA into Maps App I was taken first to the street signs at the bottom of this post. Harmony, Pennsylvania is about 30+ miles north of the city, Pittsburgh.
Unfortunately the Harmony Museum was closed for the day by the time I got to town so will find a willing friend and return. (Preferably on a Spring day with some blue sky.)
I read they have a German Christmas Market, too. Views of Main Street and
Harmony Fire Department
Bottlebrush Gallery and Center for the Arts
Stohr Haus Bakery on Left
We will have lunch at the Stohr Haus Bakery .
Have to plan to arrive at the right time, next time.
Open Wed-Fri 7-2 Saturday 8-2
Below -the Historical Marker for the Harmonist Cemetery.
“Graves were not marked”
Have you ever seen a cemetery without a single marker?

Steve and I went to Harmony in March 2010 (blogpost at night) for a poetry reading at the Bottlebrush Gallery
Today I shopped in the gallery- bought tea towels and a baby quilt.
Because I took a circuitous route, avoiding the interstate and driving the secondary roads, my phone GPS took me to 3 Harmony signs near the town of Baden, PA. Unintentional but interesting to find three Harmony signs.
Received a great response from Harmony Museum Thanks Ruth!! A great time to visit us next would be June 11th. It is our Herb & Garden Fair (at our Harmonist Barn), Fiber Festival in town, and Springfest in town. Lots going on! Free shuttle between the barn and town. Food, entertainment, artists, demonstrations, so much to photograph that day! Starts at 9 am and runs until 3 pm, though the shops are open later than that!
