This was a wonderful tour of an artists' former home and gardens. We learned a lot and were awed by some of the beautiful outdoor areas.

Must see and experience this gem of Indiana history. Definitely do the guided tour. Try to take all of the property in. Especially Inspiration Point.

This out of the way place was a nice find, especially if one enjoys paintings. The history of the estate and how TC Steele came to be such an artist worth the visit. Much kept in original condition, especially the house and furnishings.
