Local News

NEW HARMONY, Ind. (WEHT) – Harmonie State Park dedicated its new outdoor education pavilion in New Harmony on Friday.

The pavilion represents a partnership between the Friends of Harmonie State Park and members of the Indiana State Parks.

The Friends of Harmonie State Park raised approximately $85,000 to fund the pavilion.

It was built next to the park’s nature center and is meant to be used for different public programs.

There’s a unique piece of history housed in the pavilion: a preserved slice of a black oak tree from the park.

The tree was named the largest black oak in the state in 2010.

It fell in 2011.
