What an experience - visiting Copshaholm - the Oliver family's grand 38 room mansion at the History museum.
This is truly a magnificent home and the docent providing the tour makes one feel like they are meeting, and coming to know, the Oliver family. It was very obvious that the docent was totally knowledgeable in both the history of the home and its inhabitants. and completely enjoyed telling visitors about it. That was special.
It would be difficult to add to the dozens of positive and glowing reviews that previous visitors have recorded. The home is without compare, incredibly beautifully furnished and luxuriously decorated. Outstanding.
It would be difficult to try and describe the beauty of the interior of this home as each room seemed to have its own distinct and different character. The round turrets, multi floors, grand staircases, exquisite woodwork and very ornate ceilings are breathtaking.
The home is truly a national treasure - a "must see" - and certainly worth a lengthy detour to visit if it is not directly on your travel route.
Due to limited mobility we were not able to continue the extended portion of the tour which showcases a tour of a typical 1930's factory worker's home. Those that did complete that portion of the tour said the workers home was well done and was very interesting.
South Bend - you have done an amazing - and most enviable - job of preserving such a great slice of history at your combined Studebaker, Copshaholm, Polish Workers Home and History Museum itself. It seems nearly impossible to see all of it in one day. We will have to come back to see more of it.
Keep up the great work,
