Where We're Located

For over 30 years, the South Bend Remedy Company manufactured cures—Royal Tea and Magnolia Blossom (a cure for “female complaints”)—in a Queen Anne-style building with a distinctive tower. In addition to serving as the patent medicine firm’s laboratory and office, the owner Albert Kelly lived in an apartment in the 1895 house. The company folded in 1928.

Threatened with demolition, the landmark was moved twice before finding a permanent home on a corner in the West Washington Street Historic District. Indiana Landmarks handled the second move and restored the building in 2003 for our Northern Regional Office.

A couple of blocks away, we’re restoring the 1885 Kizer House and its carriage house. We’ll move our Northern Regional Office to the carriage house this fall and sell the Remedy with a protective covenant, continuing our tradition of serial restoration for our South Bend office location.

The Northern Regional Office serves 15 counties, working with individuals and groups to save historic places and offering restoration advice.
