by Courtney Johnston This Little-Known Natural Oasis Hiding In Indiana Will Make A Dreamer Out Of You
Indiana is a state full of surprises, filled with
gorgeous ruins and a site that nearly housed the 8th Wonder of the World. Just when you think you’ve uncovered all the hidden treasures in our fair state, another gem pops up. This enchanting natural oasis is hiding in Brown County, Indiana and will fulfill all of your wildest daydreams.
The Gardens at T.C. Steele State Historic Site are some of the most gorgeous gardens in the entire state. Nestled in the vibrant countryside of Brown County, these colorful grounds are a popular place for artists and nature enthusiasts alike to visit for inspiration and tranquility.
These unbelievable gardens and grounds looks like they popped straight out of a watercolor painting, which is perhaps why they have inspired and encouraged so many works of art.
The grounds are particularly gorgeous in the fall, when all of the phenomenal colors of Brown County come to life.
The gardens are named after famous American painter, T.C. Steele, who was well known for his breathtaking Indiana landscapes. Steele lived here with his wife, Selma (an art educator), and over time the two developed this home in Brown County, growing wondrous gardens to serve as muses.
Visitors can bask in the beauty of these magical grounds on their own or by guided tours.
If you love nature, history, art, or simply enjoy exploring the beauty of rural Indiana, you absolutely have to check out these incredible gardens.
You can find the gardens at 4220 T C Steele Rd in Nashville, IN 47448.
Normal visiting hours are Tuesday - Saturday, 9am - 5pm and Sunday from 1pm - 5pm and entry is free for non-guided tour visits. Check their
