Historic Site
“ A knowledgeable docent will guide you on a tour of lovely Copshaholm, one of the finest and most well-preserved house museums in the country. Built and lived in only by the Oliver family of South Bend, the furnishings are still intact, the home being donated as a museum by the heirs of the family, after the last Oliver to live there passed away.”

Art Gallery
“If it's art and it uses fire, they do it here. Sculpting, metalworking, jewelry -- it's very cool to tour, and they have some great work on exhibit and for sale. Only open Tue/Thu/Sat though.”
