The town of Harmony began as a dairy settlement in the late 19th century started by Swiss immigrants. Since the 1970s, Harmony has ridden cycles of prosperity and neglect and today is a town in name only. A small cadre of artisans keeps Harmony alive, with retail shops selling art objects, locally hand blown glass and pottery. In 2014 the 2.5 acre town was purchased by a private investor who plans to restore and preserve the historic town.
