March 15, 2017

Studebaker, the automobile manufacturer that made cars in South Bend, Indiana from 1902 until the early 60s when it went out of business, it left behind a one-million-square-ft. plant south of downtown South Bend. Today, entrepreneur Kevin Smith is working on making it an innovation center.
