Beautiful grounds and house. Learned a lot about early settlement of artists. Made me appreciate the long history of Brown County's aesthetic appeal.

Docent led tour. John was not only knowledgable but enthusiastic to share the history of TC Steele. Felt we knew the history of the art, studio and house when we left. John brought the family to life. John described Steele's progression in his career and his influence on Indiana's art community. We highly recommend going to this site. the state... More

My wife and I enjoyed our visit of the T.C. Steele State Historic Site. We (and especially my wife) both enjoy art but were not familiar with T.C. Steele's life or work. We are now and are both big fans. The park was nice too with many hiking trails and places to have a picnic with family and friends. We... More

Take the 1 hour, $5 tour. Well worth it. Because of cold weather, we were the only 2 on the tour so we got to ask lots of questions and see much of this esteemed artist's work.

Since I Am An Artist I Especially Enjoyed Our (Mostly Level) 1-Hour Walking Tour of The Artist's Studio, Home, Gardens, & Grounds Conducted By A Knowlegeable Guide. A Nominal Fee Is Charged.

This site is like a giant time capsule that you can walk through. The studio and home are filled with the artist's work and are much like he and his wife left in in the early part of the twentieth century. The guides are very knowledgeable and the grounds very rustic and inviting. Well worth the $5 entry.

Home and studio of Indiana artist TC Steele and his wife. Set on top of a hill in Brown County, the grounds and scenery themselves are gorgeous. Great trail hiking - some of the trails of moderate difficulty. Home and art studio are accessible only with tour guide. Cost $5 which is definitely worth it..... seeing the art and hearing... More

Beautiful grounds, with a garden that could use a little TLC. Trail of silences was a wonderful respite from the noise of a school group visiting. Dappled sunlight in a valley between ravines on a fall day, wonderful. Cabin is free and self guided, house and studio tour must be purchased. Worth the money to help a site like this... More

Setting is very beautiful wooded ridge. Gallery was quite significant. Tour of home was one of the best I've been through, as mostly original furnishings. Staff here was most friendly, knowledgeable, courteous, and extremely helpful. Gardens were a bit dry and gone by when we visited. Highly recommended. About 2 miles S of Indiana46 Belmont Indiana.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the site and information about Steele and his family. The grounds needs some work but worthwhile to visit.
