Where We're Located

For the last decade, our Northern Regional Office has operated out of the historic Kizer House in South Bend, the most recent example of the serial restoration we’ve practiced in the city for more than 30 years.

In 2012, we began rehabilitating the Kizer House, using funds from the sale of our previous northern office, the Remedy Building, to undertake complete exterior restoration of the c.1888 house, garage, and grounds. Today, the Kizer House is on the market.

Our investment in the property will give the next buyer a head start on rehabilitating one of South Bend’s most prominent landmarks, and proceeds from the sale will help fuel Indiana Landmarks’ ongoing preservation work in the city and surrounding region.

The Northern Regional Office serves 14 counties, working with individuals and groups to save historic places and offering restoration advice.
