Steeped in rich art heritage, Brown County has and always will be a haven for artists! Drawn to the area’s breathtaking vistas, lush scenery, and interesting characters, artists migrated to the region nearly a century ago to establish their own art colony, one of the first of its kind in the Midwest.
This September, Brown County will pay special tribute to its historic past and present-day art heritage during Art Colony Weekend, September 8-10!
Did you know that Brown County is one of America’s original art colonies? Did you know it’s also home to one of the oldest art galleries in the country? That’s right, around here art is more than just something to admire, it’s a way of life…and it always has been!
Dubbed the “Art Colony of the Midwest,” Brown County has deep artistic roots, stretching all the way back to the late 1800s! A long-standing haven for the arts, it’s still living up to the title today!
Whether it’s quick getaway or an extended stay, the Hidden Valley Inn is your home away from home. Welcoming and well-kept, Hidden Valley is beyond comfortable, it’s down-right cozy!
Located on the north end of the Village, the Hidden Valley Inn is just a minute’s walk from all the downtown action. Only a short stroll away from your favorite restaurant or shop, Hidden Valley is close and convenient. Yet, it’s still enough off the beaten path to give you the solitude you want for a true Brown County getaway!
There’s no way better to get out and explore Brown County than on the back of a horse! Take in the natural beauty of the forest and have a little fun…no cowboy boots necessary! Recently the Visitors Center staff had the chance to hit the trails at Schooner Valley Stables for a daytime adventure.
