Quick Reference

Most scientifically planned of all the American experiments in Fourierism, was founded at Red Bank, N.J. (1843), by Albert Brisbane, with the advice of Parke Godwin, W. H. Channing, Horace Greeley, and George Ripley. The colony maintained a three-story phalanstery, a gristmill, and a large orchard, and occupied a considerable area of fertile land. The members, mostly people of culture and refinement, ate their meals together, but each family had separate quarters and each member was allowed to work at the task which best suited him. Careful attention was paid to the education of children. When the mill burned (1854), the association was dissolved.
