The History Museum

The History Museum, a multi-faceted historical site, comprises the Oliver Mansion, the Worker’s Home, a permanent gallery of local history, a permanent gallery of Notre Dame History, a children’s museum, and galleries for special exhibition. The Oliver Mansion is a 38-room historic house that was home to J.D. Oliver family. J.D. Oliver was president of the Oliver Chilled Plow Works. All furnishings in the mansion are original to the home, giving a remarkable glimpse of how the family once lived. The Worker’s Home is furnished to reflect how a 1930s family might have lived. In addition, The History Museum is the national repository of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, immortalized in the film A League of Their Own.
