Where you’ll be

South Bend, Indiana, United States

The Museum District / West Washington neighborhood is a racially diverse, historic neighborhood. Some South Bend folks remember this area as the 'bad part' of town, and years ago that was probably the case.

However, the City of South Bend has been systematically restoring its neighborhoods, and a special focus has been put on the Museum District because of its heritage and the fairly recent relocation of the Studebaker National Museum to its heart.

Like much of South Bend, some areas in our neighborhood still badly need restoration, but other parts--like Washington and Colfax--are idyllic for walks, lined with gorgeous homes. The streets can be a little dark at night but generally safe if you take care.

Also like most areas, the occasional crime of opportunity does happen, so stowing valuables where they can't be seen is just good sense. For your added safety and security, we have video cameras trained outside the home and in common areas inside as well.

We're right across the street from the nationally acclaimed Studebaker Museum and The History Museum, located in the Oliver Mansion, a 38-room Victorian house where the J.D. Oliver family once lived.

We highly recommend strolling downtown via Washington (past the K. C. DeRhodes House, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, and Tippecanoe Place, Clem Studebaker's historic mansion and restaurant) and walking back Colfax, past the home of Schuyler Colfax (Vice President under Grant). Also down Washington is the Notre Dame Center for Arts and Culture and IUSB's Civil Rights Heritage Center.
