|We drove to south bend today to see the studebaker museum. They started out in 1852 as a wagon manufacturer and many of those old models are on display. The early cars as well as the last car manufactured in south bend, a 1963 Daytona are on display. Studebaker manufactured trucks during the war, and those are shown too. This is a great museum filled with nostalgia including the Lark and the Avanti, some of the last models produced. The company closed the south bend plant in dec 1963 and closed the Canadian operation in 1966.
We then took an extensive tour of Copshaholm, an 1897 38 room mansion built by Joseph Oliver. His claim to fame was the chilled plow a process he perfected to build plows of iron that were inexpensive and smooth, to cut the praire. This is part of the history museum.
On the way back to our campground we found a round about at the junction of two country roads, makes one think of England.
We also found that we are in Michiana - as we are close to the Michigan state line. All over there are signs for Michiana.
