If you're looking for a few hours of holiday fun grab the family and head over to the Oliver mansion here in Michiana.

Every year the South Bend institution is beautifully decorated for Christmas.

With more than 12,000 sq. feet of living space, 14 fire places, 8 bedrooms, and 9 bathrooms, the house is one of the most spectacular in the United States.

Built in 1897, only a family of 6 lived there (and a slew of servants, maids, and butlers). The house also has all the original furniture and other items; including the spices in the kitchen. All is as it was left.

Christmas time is the best time to check out this house. Impressive doesn’t begin to describe it.

Hours:
Monday – Saturday: 10AM - 5PM
Sunday: 12 - 5PM

Prices are $8 for adults; $10 on Sunday.
