SAH Chicago Annual Bus Tour, June 25, Chicago to South Bend

South Bend Trip Itinerary, June 25

Board bus on Adams St, west of Michigan Ave @ 8:00 a.m. SHARP.

From a frontier start in the 1820s as a trading post of the American Fur Company, to industrial growth starting with the 1852 Studebaker blacksmith shop, South Bend added notable architecture in the late nineteenth century and onward. We will travel to view the University of Notre Dame campus, starting at Bond Hall, the classically-oriented School of Architecture and its impressive library, the Administration Building in Latin Quadrangle, the Basilica of the Sacred Heart and Performing Arts Center; then on to lunch at the Tippecanoe Place Restaurant (former Studebaker mansion) at 1 p.m..

After lunch, we’ll tour West Washington Avenue, the elegant residential section, including a house by Frank Lloyd Wright and the Joseph D. Oliver Mansion, “Copshaholm” (by architects Lamb and Rich, 1896), on the National Trust Register of Historic Places then into the noted Studebaker Auto History National Museum.

Chicago pickup point: Board tour bus at Adams and Wabash at 7:45 a.m. for 8:00 a.m. departure. We should be back in Chicago by 8:00 p.m. Please join us!

Chicago Chapter SAH’s exploration will include special access to University of Notre Dame sites, with expert guidance at each listed venue and lunch at the Tippecanoe Place Restaurant, the former Studebaker mansion (Henry Ives Cobb, 1889).
