The T.C. Steele State Historic Site includes the last home and studio of Indiana artist Theodore Clement Steele (1847-1926) and his second wife Selma Neubacher Steele (1870-1945). Steele, a member of the noted "Hoosier Group" of American Impressionist painters, was attracted to Brown County by the scenery he encountered while hiking in the area.

The TC Steele State Historic Site includes gardens, trails, gift shop and a nature preserve. There is an artist in residence during certain times and the site is open all year except during these times - Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day.
