Get Directions

Built on the original site of the two Harmonist churches, Church Park is a peaceful location in the center of the town. A fountain by noted sculptor Don Gummer sits in the middle of the formal gardens and the park is entered through a re-creation of the Door of Promise, which welcomed Harmonists to their large brick church. This re-creation includes the Harmonist golden rose motif and inscription, ‘Micah 4 vs. 8.’ This inscription refers to the German Lutheran translation of the bible verse: ‘And thou Tower of Eden, the stronghold of the daughter of Zion, the golden rose shall come, the former dominion, the Kingdom of the daughter of Jerusalem.’

The park is open daily and free to the public from dawn to dusk.
