The History Museum dedicates tea house at Oliver Mansion
SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- The outdoor tea house at the historic Oliver Mansion in downtown South Bend was dedicated on Thursday.
The mansion's tea house was reconstructed thanks to a donation from the TCU Foundation.
The original tea house was constructed in 1908 and was designed by landscape architect Louisa Yeomans King.
"Having this rebuilt in the way it was intended to be really helps us kind of take people back in time and show them what it used to be like when the tea house was here in 1927," said Kristie Erickson, the Deputy Executive Director of The History Museum.
The tea house and accompanying gardens are now open to guests.
