The lodge was built in 1915. The building will get a new roof, historically accurate wood windows, and selective masonry repair. The building also has tin ceilings. The interior will also be restored to its original floor plan.

New Harmony was the site of two attempts at utopian communities in the 19th century.

The town is located about 20 miles northeast of Evansville.
