South Bend has a rich history just waiting to be discovered by you. Here's where you can experience the city's past.

You may have noticed a sense of pride among South Bend residents. People are happy to live here, not only because of the amazing community but also because of the sense of history. If you're interested in learning more about South Bend's history, immerse yourself in these museums, tours, and other resources recommended by our real estate agents.

  • The History Museum - 808 W Washington St
    If you're looking for a rich overview of the region's history, The History Museum is the perfect first stop. As the name indicates, this is the place to go for South Bend history. Housed in the Oliver Mansion, the home of one of South Bend's most influential families, the exhibits focus not only on the family's history in the area but also on other aspects of the region's history, such as the influence of the St. Joseph River on the town's origins and growth, and the impact of World War I.

  • Studebaker National Museum - 201 Chapin St
    For a look into a specific part of South Bend's history, check out the Studebaker National Museum. Studebaker was a major player in the history of the region, moving over the years from blacksmithing to horse-drawn vehicles to automobiles. Learn more about the company's history at the museum, and peruse special exhibits featuring topics such as the history of electric vehicles and a special, in-depth look at the Studebaker Avanti.

  • Architectural Walking Tour - Downtown South Bend
    Downtown South Bend is jam-packed with history. One of the best ways to get an overview is to join one of the architectural walking tours, which are held on the first Friday of every month throughout the summer and fall. Learn more about South Bend's evolving architecture, how buildings have changed over the years, and what buildings have been lost to time. For $5 per person, you can benefit from the knowledgeable guides or visit the website to download a self-guided tour.

  • Civil Rights Heritage Center - 1040 W Washington St
    The Civil Rights Movement is a huge part of South Bend's history. Indiana University South Bend has taken an old, once-segregated pool and turned it into the home of the Civil Rights Heritage Center. As part of its mission to educate residents on the history of racial progress in the region, the center has established an African American Landmark Tour through South Bend, which can be walked, biked, or driven.

  • University of Notre Dame
    The history of South Bend would be incomplete without a look at the University of Notre Dame. Founded in 1842 by a French priest, the university would grow to be an important anchor and influence on the evolving community of South Bend. On the university's campus, you'll find other opportunities to learn about the region's history by visiting other regional landmarks, such as the Basilica of the Sacred Heart.

In addition to its thriving community, South Bend has a rich history to offer to any incoming residents. If you're ready to start browsing South Bend homes for sale, whether as a newcomer or an existing resident, contact us today, and we'll help you start the search for your dream home.
