South Bend's history is deeply rooted with the Studebaker company. Here's where you can celebrate the manufacturer's history.

Did you know that the second Saturday of every September has been designated as the International Drive Your Studebaker Day? It may seem like an obscure holiday, but in South Bend, every day is Studebaker Day. Our community is proud to share its roots with this beloved classic car company. Interested in honoring South Bend's roots? Our real estate agents recommend celebrating Studebaker Day any day of the year by visiting the following historical sites.

  • Studebaker National Museum - 201 Chapin Street
    If you're interested in finding out more about Studebaker's roots in South Bend, your first stop will, of course, be the museum. Here you can learn all about the Studebaker family's early roots in South Bend industry, starting out as blacksmiths in the 1850s before moving on to automobiles in the early days of the twentieth century. Studebaker became known as a top American brand of automobiles, and their South Bend factory was a formative force in building the community of South Bend. When the company closed in the 1960s, they donated their collection of cars and other vehicles to the city of South Bend, forming the museum's original collection, which has been added to since. Visit the museum for a complete history of Studebaker in South Bend, a tour of the permanent collection, and rotating special exhibits, such as an exhibit on the surprisingly lengthy history of electric cars.

  • Tippecanoe Place Restaurant - 620 W Washington St
    Walk in the footsteps of the Studebaker family themselves when you visit the Tippecanoe Place Restaurant, located in the mansion built by Clement Studebaker in the late 1880s. This elegant restaurant serves top-notch fare in an unforgettable atmosphere. Visit for dinner Wednesday through Sunday, lunch Friday or Saturday, and brunch on Sunday.

  • Studebaker Brewing Co. - 620 W Washington St
    Looking for something a little more casual than the fine dining experience at the Tippecanoe Place Restaurant? Check out Studebaker Brewing Co., located on the third floor of the Studebaker mansion. Hours are extended beyond the more limited hours in the restaurant, and the food is more pub-inspired, but with a fine dining flavor worthy of the mansion's historic atmosphere.

  • Murder Mystery Dinner - 620 W Washington St
    Want to do something extra exciting to celebrate Studebaker Day? Check out the Murder Mystery Dinner, held at the Studebaker mansion on September 23, 2022. At this dinner a la 1935, you'll be treated to delectable food up to the Tippecanoe Place's usual standards, served with a side of mystery. Come with an appetite!

  • Bendix Woods Park - 56960 Timothy Road, New Carlisle
    If you don't have the appetite for fine dining (or a murder mystery), there are plenty of other ways to honor South Bend's Studebaker roots. If you have time for a little sightseeing, make the short drive to Bendix Woods Park, the site of the old Studebaker automobile factory and test track. In addition to the Studebaker-Bendix Heritage Trail, you'll see the famous pine trees that were planted in the 1930s to spell out Studebaker from the sky.

Of course, there are many other uses of the name Studebaker in and around South Bend, designed to honor and remind us of our community's roots. If it weren't for thriving industry such as what the Studebakers and others brought to South Bend, we wouldn't have the community we have today or the selection of South Bend homes for sale.
