Harvard, Massachusetts, USA, is around thirty-five miles west of Boston in Worcester County. The history of this small town dates back to the early eighteenth century, when Harvard was incorporated. Throughout the history, the town has been well known for a couple of religious and sociological experiments, the most famous of which was carried out in the middle of the nineteenth century. A family that just recently moved to Harvard tried to establish a transcendental socialist farm, the so-called Fruitlands, where they hoped to live off home-grown fruits. However, the experiment did not succeed and was over after only eight months. Nowadays, the former farmhouse is part of the Fruitlands Museum on Prospect Hill. The architecture of the town is characterized by beautiful Victorian and Colonial houses. Currently, the population is around six thousand five hundred.
