The Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites will Saturday celebrate the opening of the new Singing Winds Visitor Center at the T.C. Steele State Historic Site in Nashville. The $2.2 million project broke ground in 2017 and was funded through public and private donations and grants.
The 4,600-square-foot facility features programming space, indoor restrooms, a gift shop and a video introduction to the site’s history, among other amenities.
"With the new visitor center and activities, we’re providing an improved visitor experience for everyone who comes to the site," Cathy Ferree, chief executive officer of the Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites said in a news release. "We want families to spend time together at all of our locations, learning new things and connecting with one another, and these updates help facilitate that."
The museum says the site will also feature new experiences, including T.C.’s Outdoor Studio and a newly-restored kitchen space.
