Helicon Home Colony

The Helicon Home Colony was the brainchild of the renowned author and muckraking journalist Upton Sinclair. It lasted less than 6 months and went down in a literal blaze. “We stood in the snow and watched our beautiful utopia flame and roar, until it crashed in and died away to a dull glow.”
