The Home Of Truth
Painting - Oil On Panel
check out "The Home of Truth" on Google. It's pretty creepy. Anyway I had a family member who had to be a part of that for a short period of time as a child. Really amazing sky and portent. Marie Ogden, I believe, was the name of the leader of this cult in Southern Utah. Once, she announced that she had brought back one of her true believers from the dead. Spooky.
The Home of Truth was a religious community, cult in my opinion, in which my father and his siblings lived for a period of time during their childhoods in the southwest. This is an image taken from a larger photo of several of the residents. This is my uncle. He was anxious and worried his whole life.
From Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia: Home of Truth is a ghost town located in San Juan County in southeastern Utah, United States. The settlement was a short-lived utopian religious intentional community in the 1930s, led by a spiritualist named Marie Ogden. The Home of Truth started in 1933 with an initial population of 22 people, but grew to around 100 at its peak.
During its brief history the town was isolated from the surrounding community socially as well as physically, its residents keeping to themselves in a strict, simple lifestyle. Ogden took over the local newspaper and used it to introduce outsiders to her beliefs. The crisis that led to the downfall of the Home of Truth resulted from her writings about efforts to raise a woman from the dead. The investigations by local authorities and the intense media attention that followed drove most of the members to abandon the group by the end of 1937. A handful of residents continued to occupy Home of Truth until 1977
