State Sen. Jim Tomes (R-Wadesville, left) presents a resolution calling for the display of a sign along Interstate-64 recognizing New Harmony as a National Historic Landmark.
Senate Concurrent Resolution 18 urges the Indiana Department of Transportation to place signs east and west bound near Exit 4 on I-64 to identify the Town of New Harmony as a "National Historic Landmark District."
“New Harmony was named a National Historic Landmark District in 1965, as it possesses exceptional value and quality in illustrating and interpreting the heritage of the United States,” Tomes said. “Today, New Harmony is a vibrant community where festivals, concerts and plays are held, and many choose the area for weddings, conferences and retreats. This new sign along I-64 will inform traveling visitors of the town’s unique history and significance.”
