Open Thursday & Friday
The Museum of the New Llano Colony opened on September 8, 2013 to celebrate the rich legacy of the socialists who once called this land home.
They came from all walks of life and from all over the world seeking Utopia – a paradise where “you produce for use, not profit”, where all members did equal work for equal benefits.
Though the colony itself lasted only a little over two decades, many of the ideals they promoted are taken for granted by Americans today, including minimum wages, equal rights for women and child labor laws, health care and old age pensions.
