I really enjoyed the tour of the workshop and home. When the visitor center opens, this will be a 5 star location! TC Steele is one of Indiana's most recognized artist. Great for the entire family.

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... More
