Old Barn, Harmony

     Here's an old barn located in the community of Harmony, on the Harmony Road (Rte. 128) just before you get to St. Chrysostome.  The barn is on the left side of the road by a creek just before the old store. 
     I always wondered why this community was called Harmony.  From the Geographical Place Names of Prince Edward Island by Alan Rayburn, Page-61, he explains. 
     "Harmony: 7 mi SW of Tyne Valley in Lots 13 and 14.  Selected for a school c1875 because the settlers of many nationalities - French, Irish, Scottish, English, Dutch - got along peaceably.  PE 1907-1914, Formerly called Line Road."
