Today in 1841: Brook Farm, history’s most well-known utopian community, is founded by George and Sophia Ripley near West Roxbury, Massachusetts.
Its primary appeal was to young Bostonians who were uncomfortable with the materialism of American life, and the community was a refuge for dozens of transcendentalists, including authors Ralph Waldo Emerson and Nathaniel Hawthorne.
