The original house was built in 1835. In 1898 noted Indiana artists, J. Ottis Adams and T.C. Steele selected this site to set up their home and studios, where the Hoosier Group painted for several years. Available is a lovely turn-of-the-century library with antique books, magazines and a wood burning fireplace.
Tour the 19 room house and join the hostess for refreshments in the living room or art studios.
