The elegant 38-room Oliver Mansion, once home to the J.D. Oliver family, is one of three historic houses owned by The History Museum. The Worker's Home, decorated to reflect how a Polish working-class family might have lived in the 1930s, is another of the museum's historic houses.
Both are shown daily by guided tour. We regret that house tours can accomodate only a limited number of visitors. There are multiple stairs in both historic houses.
The Historic Oliver Garden surrounding the Oliver Mansion include over two acres of lush, beautiful flowers. Within a short distance of The History Museum is the Navarre Cabin, located in the City of South Bend's Leeper Park (East). The cabin, which underwent extensive restoration a few years aago, was built by Pierre Navarre, the area's first settler.
