The T. C. Steele State Historic Site (also called the Theodore Clement Steele House and Studio, and named the House of the Singing Winds by its original owners) is located in rural Brown County, Indiana, one and a half miles south of Belmont, between Bloomington and Nashville, Indiana. The property was the studio and home of Hoosier Group landscape and portrait artist Theodore Clement Steele (1847–1926) and Selma Neubacher Steele (1870–1945), the artist's second wife. Shortly before her death in 1945, Selma donated the property on 211 acres (85 hectares) of land to the Indiana Department of Conservation (the present-day Indiana Department of Natural Resources) to establish a state historic site in memory of her husband. The property was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973 as the Theodore Clement Steele House and Studio. The Indiana State Museum operates the historic site, which is open to the public and offers guided tours of the home and studio.

  • We arrived late afternoon just in time for a guided tour of the vintage 1920s home & the large airy Art Barn Studio where much of T C Steele's art work is on display. Hiked down to Selma's garden...

  • Very beautiful grounds. Did not get to tour inside due to time but loved the outdoor garden and trails. Great conversation with the gardener. Especially loved the artist studio and the camouflage cape for pictures. More people need to see this place!
  • Interesting tour. Amazing what it took to build this home over 100 yes ago. Good history lesson.
