History

Harvey was founded in 1891 by Christian leader Turlington W. Harvey, a close associate of Dwight Moody (founder of the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago). Harvey was originally intended as a model town for “Christian” values and temperance (no-alcohol); it was closely modeled after the company town of Pullman (which eventually was annexed into the city of Chicago).[citation needed]
