A great place to visit! I often come here in the spring to see all the daffodils in bloom on the hillside leading up to the house. Steele's wife Selma reportedly planned her gardens so that something would be in bloom just about year-round. The short tour of the workshop and house is very interesting. So fascinating that this beautiful... More

This is an original homesite of the well known artist TC Steele. The homestead is being renovated to original. The gardens are being tilled and restored. Trails are prepared to engulf the experience. Family graves are on site. Ponds with frogs and lily pads. Wisteria vines galore. Tours of the house and other restored buildings. Some of his paintings are... More

Art history and inspiring new art in magnificent surroundings. The trails were tough despite the moderate ranking, my iPhone tallied 28 floors, mostly straight up or down. These are not trails for people with small kids, packing babies or any physical limitation. Wear sturdy shoes. #1, Trail of Silences was like a fairy tale in beauty. #4, Perkerwood Trail, the...

I spent a couple of hours here with my two teenage daughters. We enjoyed walking around the beautiful property and taking pictures. We took the tour of the house and studio. Very informative but mostly it was a nice, slow paced kind of day.

I am not an artist but my wife and her friend are and wanted to visit this place. My buddy and I were with mainly because the ladies wanted to go.. I actually found it interesting, not because of the art but because you were able to step back in time and see how people lived back in the early... More

The T. C. Steele site is a little out of the way but well worth the effort for lovers of art and history.

Took my 20 year old granddaughter to see this place which I had once seen. It is very interesting and very accurate in detail. I do wish the state would do a littleTLC on the place but it was okay, especially inside.

This was something my wife wanted to do and not really something I wanted to do but you know how that works. But I'm glad I went, very fun and informing. Some very interesting things about an Indiana painter I knew nothing about but now feel I should have. His house and studio is on the property with 95% of... More

My wife and I knew essentially nothing about this artist other then he was a part of the Hoosier arts movement of the early 1900's. We arrived on Friday the 13th in May and did not know what to expect since we were driving higher and higher into the wooded hills of Brown County, Indiana, and the road way became... More

I came here as a tour guide for some Polish delegates for the 2014 International Convention of Jehovah's Witnesses in Indianapolis. They LOVED it. I was kind of bored but they seemed to get a kick out of it.
