It was 1897 when J.D. Oliver and his family moved into their 38-room mansion in South Bend, Indiana. Later named Copshaholm, it was designed by Charles Alonzo Rich of New York and would be their home for 75 years. Built in the Romanesque Queen Anne Style, the exterior of the 12,000-square-foot Oliver Mansion is native granite. Hand-carved woodwork, 14 fireplaces, and leaded Tiffany windows add to the home’s beauty. All furnishings are original to the home. J.D. Oliver was president of the Oliver Chilled Plow Works, which was founded by his father, James Oliver, inventor of the chilled plow.
