Haan Mansion Museum of Indiana Art
The Haan Mansion Museum of Indiana Art, as its name indicates, showcases art created by Indiana artists. It is located in a mansion that was, interestingly, built for the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair and designed to be dismantled for transfer to another location. The museum gets its name from the current owners, Bob and Ellie Haan. It features over 100 works of art consisting of paintings, ceramics, sculptures, and furniture. Works by T.C. Steele and the Brown City Art Colony (established in 1907 in Nashville, Indiana) are well represented here. The furniture, most of which dates to the Renaissance Revival period, is also a highlight. The sculptures are located outside in a sculpture garden opened in 2016. Other attractions at the museum are the nature and mountain biking trails located on the property's five acres.
