The  Granary  is  an  outstanding  example  of  Harmonist  architecture  and  is  individually  documented  in  the  Historic  American  Building  Survey.  This  structure  was  originally  built  by  the  Harmonie  Society  in  1818.  In  1827,  after  the  end  of  the  Owen/Maclure  experiment,  the  Granary  became  Williams  Maclure’s  property.  In  1843,  David  Dale  Owen  gained  possession  of  the  building  and  converted  the  space  for  use  as  a  geological  laboratory.  In  1948,  Owen  descendant  Kenneth  Dale  Owen  purchased  the  building.  The  structure  underwent  extensive  restoration  and  reconstruction  from  1997-1999,  and  is  currently  owned  by  the  Rapp  Granary-Owen  Foundation.
