(BROWN CO.) - The Indiana Historical Society awarded a Heritage Support Grant of $44,000 to the Friends of T. C. Steele State Historic Site.

The funds will be used to recreate the painter's studio wagon. Steele used his wagon to work as he traveled through Indiana with his family. Acquired in 1896, the wagon had a small cooking stove and large windows that Steele could look through while painting.

"The original studio wagon burned in a fire in 1913," said Cate Whetzel, project manager and program developer at the historic site. "The new studio wagon will be a permanent outdoor exhibit at the T. C. Steele State Historic Site, open to visitors three seasons of the year. We hope to welcome guests to an unveiling party by the end of the summer."
