Biographical/Historical Note

The Ruskin Co-operative Association, active from 1893 to 1899 in Ruskin, Tennessee and from 1899 to 1901 in Ruskin, Georgia. The Ruskin Colony was apparently the first Marxist-influenced commune in the United States. The Ruskin Community moved to Georgia near the Florida line in Ware County, Georgia. Around 1901 the project failed and the property was sold at a sheriff's sale.
