A WALK AROUND THE BUILDING--FROM THE WEST COUNTER-CLOCKWISE

This four-story visitors' center houses offices, a small auditorium, and exhibit space. On a hill outside the historic village of New Harmony, it is the starting point for the tour of this utopian community. The brilliant white steel frame building is clad in square (2' 6") porcelain enamel panels.
