Park Details


General Description
    The historic site comprises the estate of Theodore Clement Steele (1847-1926), one of Indiana''s most prominent landscape and portrait painters. The site features 211-acres, mostly wooded, including a 92-acre nature preserve and five hiking trails of varying length and difficulty. Visitors may stroll restored historic gardens and enjoy staff-led guided tours of Steele''s 1907 home and 1916 studio, both of which contain original furnishings and many works of art created and collected by the Steeles.

    The property also features a small family cemetary west of the house, and the Dewar Log Cabin. Built by one of the area''s early settlers and moved to its present location by Mrs. Steele, the cabin houses a small display to introduce the trails and wildlife that may be found on the property.
