SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Three former employees of a Studebaker Corp. assembly plant in South Bend have received a tour of the factory.
The South Bend Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/18aZUH2 ) the three workers recently were invited on a private tour of Building 84 arranged by the Studebaker Drivers Club.
Lou Demeter worked at the plant until it closed in 1963. Now 89, the South Bend man says visiting the plant was strange and it was hard to even recognize where he had worked hanging trunk lids on vehicles.
The building is now called Ivy Tower and is used mostly for leased vehicle. Owner Kevin Smith plans to renovate it into a mix of data centers and technology offices, with a top floor of residential space.
