(INDIANAPOLIS) - Governor Mitch Daniels has added the portrait of a renowned South Central Indiana artist to the Hoosier Heritage Portrait Collection, which will actually replace a portrait of one of the only 2 presidents with Hoosier roots.

Theodore Clement "T.C." Steele, an Owen County native best known for his work in Brown County, especially his "House of the Singing Winds" in Nashville, will have his portrait, painted by Muncie artist Wayman Adams, added to portrait collection.

The portrait will replace that of William Henry Harrison, known as "Old Tippecanoe," who served as the first Governor of the Indiana Territory, legislator from Ohio, and as America's shortest lasting president, dying only 30 days after taking office.
