Art and history come alive this weekend during the Haan Mansion Museum of Indiana Tours on August 20 and 21. The Haan Museum is housed in an impressive Classical Revival mansion that served as the Connecticut Building at the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair, with many hand carved components taken from a 1760 mansion from Norwich, CT. The Museum features massive museum-quality American antiques and an exceptional collection of paintings by important Indiana artists, including some of the finest works by TC Steele and other Hoosier Group members. Important items from the Fair include three Weller vases ranging from 53" to 81", the largest of which won the Gold Medal for the Arts at the Fair. Limited tour size allows guests to visit each room and hear about the mansion and its contents.
