Discover the Brown County home and studio of Indiana artist T.C. Steele - still filled with original artwork and furnishing - and experience the gardens and landscape that influenced so much of his work. This location is part of the Indiana State...more
I’m not sure how we discovered that we would be traveling by T.C. Steele’s home and studio, but I’m glad we made the detour. We were the only two on a docent led tour of the studio and home. After the tour, which lasted about...More
Nestled in Brown County, this is a mid excursion to take. You can tour the studio and home of the artist T.C. Steele, or extend your visit and see some additional sites on the 60-acres.
Tour guide was good and answered all the questions.
We were there 3-8-18, a cold, overcast and wet day. Had a first class almost white glove tour by the well-informed staff. All questions answered and beyond. They were both knowledgeable. Our guide to the buildings (the younger of the two staff) clearly loves her...More
Well first, a confession: I'm a native Hoosier who's passed by the sign to the TC Steele Memorial more times than I can count but only recently went for a visit.
If you've got 2-3 hours, it well worth your time. The site consists of...More
One of my favorite painting is the boatman from T.C. Steele which is among the top masterworks of the IU Eskenazi museum of art collection.On a spring weekend road trip, we went to T.C. Steele state historic site in Brown County. The timing was great...More
We started at the main site, walked along the road to the start of the Inspiration Ridge Trail, looked at the Remote Studio (which has rotten boards, one on the roof and one on the side), went down the Peckerwood Trail and then returned via...More
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.
The T.C. Steele Historic Site was a place of true peace for me. The yard felt much like the space where I was raised. Big, old shady trees and quiet. You can hear the breeze through the trees and the squirrels preparing for the winter....More

It's about a 25 minute drive from downtown Bloomington to TC Steele. Take East 3rd St to State Rd 46 (toward Nashville, IN). From there, you'll drive along 46 until you see a sign for DesignScape Horticultural Services. At that point, you'll see a road called TC Steele Rd. Turn right there and continue down that road until you see TC Steele State Historic Site on the right again. You'll pass a large stone entry-way on the right, but continue driving straight a short ways more and you'll be able to turn right into the main parking lot to visit. It's actually a fairly easy drive and really beautiful during different times of the year with the different seasons.
