By 1886, artist T.C. Steele resided
here on estate called Tinker or
Talbott property. By 1887, he built
a studio on the grounds and opened
it to the public. He taught classes,
exhibited work, and helped advance
the quality of Midwestern art,
notably as part of Society of
Western Artists. He served as
vice-president of Art Association
of Indianapolis (established 1883).

Art Association purchased the
property here in 1901, to create John
Herron Art Institute, which included
school and museum. Herron opened
1902 and grew quickly, fulfilling
Association's goal "to cultivate and
advance Art." Herron hosted large
exhibitions of Steele's work in 1910
and 1926. Evolved into Herron
School of Art and Design and
Indianapolis Museum of Art.
