The History Museum's annual gala celebrates 125 years of Copshaholm

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- The History Museum's Annual Fundraising Gala is back on September 29, with this year's event celebrating the 125th anniversary of Copshaholm.

The fundraiser is from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Historic Oliver Gardens. Tickets are $300 per person and reservations are required.

The Copshaholm was once owned by the philanthropic family of J.D and Anna Oliver. Both J.D and his father James Oliver helped open expansions of the West and established the South Bend community as a leading manufacturing center of the Midwest.

The Olivers donated Copshaholm to The History Museum in 1988, since then the home been visited by a quarter million students, residents and tourists.

“The Annual Fundraising Gala is an elegant cocktail party that takes place under tent in the fragrant gardens of the beautiful Oliver Mansion. The event has become known in the community as a great way to catch up with old acquaintances—and meet new friends, too," said States Executive Director Brian D. Harding. "Best of all, the Gala generates much-needed funds to support the outstanding exhibits and programs presented by The History Museum all year long.”
