More fun at T.C. Steele State Historic Site

Last week, I shared photos highlighting the fun we had on our family hike at T.C. Steele State Historic Site. And while I mentioned that it now ranks as one of our favorite hiking destinations, there was more to see and do then just wander the woods.


After our hike, we let the arrow explore the Dewar Cabin. As I mentiond in my post at Visit Indiana about our trip there, 18 kids were raised in this 2-room cabin. Puts the Duggar family to shame, huh?

The arrow loved running in and out of the cabin, and peaking at us through the windows.


He also thought the cemetary was great fun. We might need to schedule a lesson on showing proper respect for the dead. I hope T.C. Steele doesn't mind his light-hearted attitude. (We did keep him from climbing on the gravestones though. We have a little bit of class.)


The beauty of the grounds is something that those of all ages can appreciate. I thought this lilly pond looked like a great spot to read a good book (you know, if I had time for that sort of thing these days...)


And while we visited before the buildings opened, we got a glimpse of the artist's home and studio. Letting the arrow walk about freely is just another reason this site is great for young kids. (Although I doubt he would have enjoyed a formal tour.)

More information about the T.C. Steele State Historic Site is available at their website.

This post is a part of Photo Friday at Delicious Baby.

Things we'll be a little quiet around here next week, as we head to Boston tomorrow for the July 4 festivities. Can't wait to share all about our fun adventures there!
