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.

T.C. Steele is my favorite artist. I not only have seen his work at the IMA, but in his little studio in Nashville, In. I would recommend this as a stop if you are in the area, you will not be disappointed. We loved it.
