Volunteer Appreciation Evening

T.C. Steele State Historic Site

If you have volunteered at T.C. Steele State Historic Site, the Brown County State Park or the Brown County Library, this event is about you! Please come to honor and be honored! This year it’s the Friends of T.C. Steele’s chance to host the appreciation. We’ll be cooking out and enjoying potluck side dishes and desserts brought by group members. Please bring a side dish or a dessert!

Sundays at Home

Once each month this summer we will be recreating the Steeles’ Sunday at Home events, during which the Steeles would entertain their neighbors with activities, entertainment, and in some cases, light refreshments. Admission to Sunday at Home events is covered in the regular tour of the historic buildings fee. These are family-friendly events, so take a look at your calendar and bring the whole family! Remember the family discount–$20.00 is the maximum any family pays, regardless of how many relatives you bring along!

This summer, our Sundays at Home will be:

Sunday, June 14, 2015:  Drop in to practice the dying art of letter writing. Come read some of Steele’s beautiful letters, and try your hand at writing letters to loved ones–we’ll provide the paper and the ink, and even post the letters from here!

Sunday, July 19, 2015: An old fashioned ice cream social! Come see a demonstration of our hand-cranked ice cream churn and give the results a taste test.

Sunday, August 9, 2015: TBD



Stay tuned for 2015 schedule.

T.C. Steele State Historic Site offers a range of art-related workshops each year. Our seasonal Artists-in-Residence share their expertise with both workshop participants and visitors to the site. Local and regional artists offer instruction at all skill levels throughout the year.
