Abstract

This field trip features the visits and work of Maximilian, Prince of Wied; David Dale Owen; Charles Alexandre Lesueur; and other natural scientists who visited or lived in New Harmony, Indiana, USA. We also outline the history of this remarkable town and note items of geological and geographical interest seen in and around New Harmony, Indiana, including the Wabash River, Native American mounds, a garden-style cemetery containing the graves of prominent scientists, and historic stone structures.
