When you visit Brown County Health & Living Community, the warm welcome from residents and staff makes you feel instantly at home. Our quiet setting offers an inviting mix of town and country, from comforting views of cattle grazing in green fields right next door to the surrounding charming town of Nashville, Indiana, the center of the Brown County Art Colony.

Located about mid-way between Bloomington and Columbus, just off SR 46, Nashville is well worth the short drive. The county seat of Brown County has been attracting people from all over the state and beyond for more than 100 years.
