The Jeffersonville Township Public Library in conjunction with the Arts Council of Southern Indiana is proud to host an exhibit and two lectures on the life of Anna and Harlan Hubbard.
Harlan Hubbard (January 4, 1900 – January 16, 1988) was an American artist and author who lived a simple life that Henry David Thoreau only experimented with. As a young man, Hubbard saw the industrial development in America as a threat to the natural world and he thoroughly rejected consumer culture. In 1929 he started keeping a journal into which he poured his thoughts on society. In 1943, he married Anna Eikenhout (she died May 3, 1986).
In 1951, Harlan and Anna built a primitive, yet elegant home at Payne Hollow on the shore of the Ohio River in Trimble County, Kentucky. It was there that the Hubbards lived lives that have been described as simultaneously frugal and abundant.
