Brown County Art, Nashville, Indiana hotel (524 words)
Theodore Clement Steele (1847-1926), noted Indiana artist and member of the Hoosier Group of American regional impressionist painters, was inspired by the picturesque scenes that he encountered in Brown County.
In 1907, Steele and his second wife, Selma Neubacher Steele, purchased 211 acres in Brown County and began construction of their home, which they named The House of the Singing Winds.
The T.C. Steele State Historic Site, bequeathed to the State of Indiana by Selma Steele at her death in 1945, is a fitting tribute to this Indiana artist.
