There’s the Oliver Opera House, standing in all its glory on North Main Street in South Bend.
Just to the north is St. Joseph County Savings Bank, right next door to an early South Bend Tribune building. And a block to the north is the elaborate circa 1902 South Bend City Hall.
All these buildings were demolished decades ago, replaced with parking lots and garages.
One by one, buildings from downtown South Bend of the late 1920s are being re-created as scale models using a 3-D printer in the University of Notre Dame’s School of Architecture Library.
