Visiting the Oliver Mansion at Christmas

My Daughter and I enjoyed a tour of the Oliver Mansion called Copshaholm in October when we went to the Dressing Downton exhibit.  We really wanted to see this mansion decorated for Christmas.  The roads in the Midwest can be iffy at best in December but we lucked out and the snow changed to rain during our trip. The roads were not the best the whole time but we had safe travels.

We called ahead and were able to add our names to the 11am tour listing the day before.  I did not want to make the long drive and then not be able to tour the house.  You can do this by calling 574-235-9664 and speaking to the staff.

Oliver Mansion Copshaholm in South Bend

Included with our Dressing Downton exhibit tickets was a tour of the Oliver Mansion called  Copshaholm.  The 38 room stately home sits on West Washington street just up the road a block from the Oliver Inn B & B and the Tippicanoe Place Restaurant.  In a previous visit we stayed at the Oliver Inn and dined at Tippicanoe, it makes for a fabulous weekend visit.

Here is a link to the Oliver Inn visit we took for a girls weekend.  https://stretchingittotravel.wordpress.com/2015/04/26/oliver-inn-south-bend-girls-weekend/
