Welcome to the Newto News for March of 2024. My name is Zack Cockfield, and my team and I created Newtomedia as a way for visitors or new residents to get information about a city. Each month we bring together resources that will update you on the history, amenities, culture, future opportunities and all other things inside a city that make it unique. We also hope to be a resource for connecting you with people and businesses that can help you live a better life. If you find our efforts useful, please click on the links to get more information!

South Bend, Indiana was founded in 1831 by fur trader Alexis Coquillard and Indian agent Lathrop M. Taylor. The city’s name is derived from its location on the southernmost bend of the St. Joseph River. South Bend quickly grew into a bustling industrial center, with the arrival of the Studebaker Corporation in the mid-19th century. The company became one of the largest manufacturers of wagons and automobiles in the United States, earning South Bend the nickname “The Bendix City.” Throughout the 20th century, South Bend continued to prosper with the development of aerospace, healthcare, and education industries. The city is home to the University of Notre Dame, a prestigious Catholic research university founded in 1842. Today, South Bend is a thriving metropolitan area with a rich cultural heritage, vibrant arts scene, and diverse population. Its historic buildings, riverside parks, and local festivals attract visitors from near and far.
