You can register online by going to the Elkhart County Parks website,, and finding the tour information under the Events Calendar page. Registration closes Friday.

The Coppes Brothers factory was where workers manufactured Hoosier Cabinets and developed the Lazy Susan Cabinet construction. As the original business declined and eventually closed, the structure now serves as a home for new businesses and shops.
