Old Meets New in a 100 year old home

NaNcy crocker is the proud innkeeper and owner of the Olde Magnolia House Inn and 4th Sister Vintage store. She bought the over 100 year old home back in early spring of 2013 and has been busy redecorating the upstairs bedrooms to match her “Make something old, something new” philosophy. Whether you are coming to browse her extensive collection of vintage and repurposed items in the store or spending the night in one of three themed guest rooms upstairs, she always has a big smile, a warm hello and a story to share for everyone. Nancy knows no strangers.

The Renoir Room is one of the three guest rooms in the Olde Magnolia House Inn

Nancy had the help of her sisters, daughter and niece, who spent months cleaning and de-cluttering the house after she purchased it. They brought the history laden home into the technological age but still maintained its original charm. One guest said “It’s like being in my room and my grandmother’s room at the same time.” There are three separate bedrooms upstairs for overnight guests, each with their own private, locked entrance and bath. There is a common area where guests can gather to play a board game, read a book

8849-101113 Almanack ad.indd 1

The 4th Sister Vintage store specializes in repurposed home décor, memorabilia and collectibles

or just relax. Each room is named after an artist that was living during the era the house was built. Cable Smart TVs, pod coffeemakers, lots of extra blankets and pillows make each room comfy yet modern. 4th SiSter ViNtage Store on the main floor is Nancy’s true passion. She named the store in honor of being the 4th sister…the youngest, who for the most part received hand-me-downs from her three older sisters. She began up-cycling at an early age with some of her sisters’ Christmas present boxes and the desire continued to grow over the years. She becomes obsessed with certain items and styles: outdoor tables and chairs, movie themes, magazine racks, and chairs. Once she finds the perfect item, she brings it back in her big red truck (Cliff), and begins the refurbishing process in her newly built garage in the back. It is already overflowing with found objects which she is willing to custom design just for you! 213 South Jefferson Street OldeMagnoliaHouseInn.com 4thSisterFurnitureCo.com 614.638.8849

Stop by and say hello — you never know what you are going to find at the 4th Sister Vintage store! Located on South Jefferson Street behind the BP gas station, room reservations available online OldeMagnoliaHouseInn.com or on Facebook.

Owner, Nancy Crocker (back row, far right) with her mother, sisters, daughter and niece on the porch of the Olde Magnolia House Inn

Birding in Brown County By BEN SKIRVIN

B

ird-watching is the third-most popular outdoor activity in America, based on a 2013 Outdoor Foundation survey, after trail running and mountain biking. Biking, boating and backpacking all require hundreds of dollars of specialized gear. But anyone with a $20 pair of binoculars can enter the world of flitting tanagers and soaring eagles. Brown County is one of the top birding destinations in Indiana. Birds like the area so much, the Indiana Audubon Society recently declared Nashville a “Bird Town USA.” Brown County State Park naturalist Jim Eagleman spearheaded the Audubon effort. “It was a no-brainer,” he said. “We basically turned in the application, and it was done.” Local bird expert Geoff Keller, author of several books on bird calls, said there are several great birding spots in Brown County, and early summer is the best time to visit. “May is the big time of year,” he said. “I can’t even start to tell you what to look for in May, because there is so much.” Based on the recommendations of Eagleman, Keller and private bird sanctuary owner Mike Kelley, here are some of the best birding spots in Brown County. continued on page 24 Opposite page: (Courtesy photo) Bird watchers at Stone Head Nature Preserve conduct a bird count.

Afternoon adventures Afternoon adventures Salt Creek Trail Sure, you can hike miles into the trackless, soggy marshlands around Monroe Reservoir, or backpack the long switchbacks of Brown County State Park. But within walking distance of downtown Nashville, the newly opened Salt Creek Trail offers a wide variety of bird habitats along a paved path. The trail starts near the CVS parking lot at the junction of state roads 46 and 135. The three-quarter-mile-long track runs through woods and near watery habitats, before winding into grassy pasture lands at the trail’s end near the YMCA.

For more information on birding in Brown County, visit: The Nature Center at Brown County State Park for maps, brochures and occasional guided tours.

Deer Run Park

The Indiana Audubon Society at indianaaudubon.com.

Only slightly farther afield, Deer Run Park is home to an impressive variety of both woodland and grassland birds. Part of the park is devoted to playing fields and baseball diamonds, but throughout the western portion, a series of grassy trails leads through carefully controlled bird habitats.

During the height of the late-spring and early-summer migration season, this area competes with more remote locations for sheer diversity of birds. Thrushes patrol among the tall grasses, while warblers and flycatchers flit among the treetops. Kestrels sometimes hover over the pastures looking for scampering chipmunks and mice, while kingfishers hunt along Salt Creek.

T.C. Steele State Historic Site The historic home of T.C. Steele doesn’t seem like a natural place to find birds. But some birds thrive among its well-manicured lawns and carefully maintained gardens. This is the land of the hummingbird, often seen hovering among the gardens. This is also an excellent area for woodland birds seen flitting across open stretches of lawn or poaching insects attracted by the garden.

Day Daytrips trips Yellowwood State Forest Slightly more remote than some of the above areas, Yellowwood State Forest is still relatively easy to get to. The main trail runs in a 4.5-mile loop around Yellowwood Lake. This area attracts some waterfowl in earlyto mid-spring. Bald eagles are occasionally seen near the lake. The park also contains a variety of other trails, from a half-mile interpretative nature trail to trailheads for the 42-mile-long Tecumseh Trail, which winds through western Brown County and into Morgan Monroe State Park.

A young bald eagle soars over the backwaters of Lake Monroe.

Serious songbird seekers will appreciate Yellowwood’s easily accessible tracts of unbroken and diverse canopy. These attract endangered and rare species like the Cerulean warbler.

Brown County State Park Brown County State Park is the largest contiguous tract of protected wilderness in Indiana and buried in its depths are a huge variety of birds – from bald eagles, which are occasionally seen patrolling the park’s lakes, to an unbelievable variety of woodpeckers, warblers, thrushes, titmice, hawks, ground birds, turkeys and nearly every other type of bird seen in Indiana. Any would-be bird-watchers should start their tour at the Nature Center. Simply follow the signs from either of the park entrances. Naturalists lead rotating birding and other wildlife tours throughout the summer. An observation window overlooks a number of bird feeders, which are frequently visited by common Indiana birds. Several moderately easy paths originate at the Nature Center. Short, moderately rugged trails circle both Ogle and Strahl lakes. Longer paths spread throughout the park, ranging from trailheads for the 20-mile-long, partially developed Ten O’clock Line Trail, to the Friends Trail, which is paved and has benches.

mostly unused farm fields, but owner Mike Kelley had a different idea. To the chagrin of many of his farmer friends, he decided to convert the area into a 122-acre bird sanctuary. “A lot of my neighbors couldn’t understand why I was taking out the drainage tiles,” Kelley said. Now, he and a group of birding friends regularly patrol the area conducting bird counts to determine the density and diversity of birds. He encourages people to visit the property and try the network of marked trails. While the longest paths are only 1.7 miles long, this land is for the birds. Accessing all of the forested areas involves hiking though a soggy marshland, intended to flood during the rainy spring and early summer. This preserve is second only to the Lake Monroe backwater area in diversity of waterfowl and water birds like cranes and herons. The wooded areas also attract an enormous variety of seasonal songbirds.

relatively easy to access. Kent Road leads to a small platform overlooking a waterfowl sanctuary at Stillwater Marsh. This is one of the most important regional migration stops for waterfowl heading north for the summer. On an average day, visitors will see birds like coots and wood ducks. On a good day, visitors might spy sandhill cranes and the occasional common loon. The marsh is surrounded by permanent bird blinds, some of which are only accessible by boat or with waders. The rest of the backwaters is more remote. Past T.C. Steele Historic Site on T.C. Steele Road, a boat ramp offers water access to the marshlands around Crooked Creek. A nearby converted logging road allows for limited hiking through some of the bogs. Trailheads for the north side of the backwaters start in Monroe County, and many stretch for five or more miles. In some areas, without a boat, visitors can expect more than 10 miles of hiking. Salt Creek is partially accessible to canoe traffic via Crooked Creek to the north and Elkinsville to the south. However, water levels can vary widely and quickly depending on weather, so visitors are advised to check on conditions prior to setting out. The entire area is extremely prone to flooding during spring and early summer. Even during relatively dry periods, it is possible to see minor flooding due to controlled runoff from Lake Monroe.

Evening Art Walks

invite visitors to see local galleries and stay awhile By SARA CLIFFORD

O

n seven Saturday nights each year, the lights stay on late in artists’ workshops and galleries downtown. Live music beckons sidewalk strollers inside to look around, shop and meet the artists whose pieces are for sale. “So many other cities in Indiana that are not known even as art colonies have their own gallery walk events,” said Anabel Hopkins. It only made sense to bring that experience here. So that’s what she and other members of the all-volunteer Art Alliance Brown County did five years ago, creating the Second Saturday Village Art Walk. This season, 10 galleries and studios will stay open from 5 to 8

p.m. on the second Saturdays of May, June, July, August, September, October and November. They’ll welcome Brown County visitors and locals to stop in, browse the many kinds of art they offer, enjoy refreshments and even watch art being made at some locations. This year, in addition to established stops like Hoosier Artist Gallery and the Brown County Art Guild, new gallery Jerseyana is on the list, as well as broommaker Broomcorn Johnny’s and instrument maker Weed Patch Music Co. “They’re artisans rather than artists,” Hopkins said about the last two, “so we want to include more than just painting and so forth in the arts.” continued on page 34

Artist offerings come in a variety of media, including glass work like this piece by Julie Taborn.

Other mediums on display besides paintings include pottery, sculpture, stone work, glass work, wood art, fiber arts, jewelry and photography.

Masters of Music Indiana Fingerstyle Guitar Competition attracting world-class talent to Brown County

I

By BEN SKIRVIN

t’s a dusky night in early April. In the back of the Muddy Boots Café, two guitar players are on stage. Their fingers are fast on the fret board, picking, sliding and strumming. “During the solo, just bang away on an E chord,” says Chuck Wills. Kara Barnard nods. “I remember this song,” she laughs and takes off on a half-acoustic version of Joe Walsh’s “Rocky Mountain Way.” These are the organizers of one of the biggest summer events in Brown County. The third annual Indiana State Fingerstyle Guitar Competition swings into Brown County July 25 to 27. Fingerstyle is a broad category of guitar playing covering languid harmonies of Spanish classical to the driving twang of Appalachia bluegrass. In this style, players pluck at the strings with fingers, nails or a special thumb pick. Fingerstyle allows complex layering of harmonies and melodies, with one player often carrying songs usually reserved for multiple musicians. After her set, Barnard sits at a table with several friends. “I used to play at the international competitions,” she says. “I thought, why can’t we do something like that here?” From that humble beginning, the idea

took off. This year’s event is set to include three solid days of concerts, competitions and workshops. Wills is one of the other major organizers of the event, in conjunction with the Brown County Convention and Visitors Bureau. He says last year’s competition was a huge success, but nothing compared to what’s planned for this year. “We are going to have a big outdoor tent party,” Wills says. “It’s gonna be a huge, huge bash.” The best musicians will then spend July 26 performing at the Brown County Playhouse. Judges will be sequestered in a separate area, unable to see the competitors. This is designed to prevent participants from being influenced by the relative fame of different competitors. “The goal is to glorify fingerstyle guitar,” Wills says. “It really fits into the acoustic guitar tradition of Brown County.” Once the winners have been announced and everyone has had a good sleep, the final day of the event will be devoted to guitar workshops for players of all skill levels. Barnard says this year’s lineup includes some of the best musicians in the world including Maxwell Hughes, a part-time member of the Lumineers, who recently placed third in the International Fingerstyle Guitar Competition in Winfield, Kan. continued on page 42
