About "At Home with the Beardsleys"

"At Home with the Beardsleys," November 24 - December 30, 2018, will take you back to a time when the Beardsley's lived in the lavish decor of the Victorian and Edwardian eras. The 1848 Havilah Beardsley House will focus on the roots of English Christmas traditions that began during the reign of Queen Victoria. Ornamental garlands and the anticipation of Father Christmas take center stage. Ruthmere was completed in 1910, placing it in the "Edwardian Era" of decorative style and fashion. Boasting exquisite fireplace mantle displays and Christmas cheer throughout the house, your tour of Ruthmere for the Holidays will be unforgettable for the entire family. With generous support from the Community Foundation of Elkhart County, we are pleased to announce reduced admission pricing during our Holiday Tour Season. Tours at each house are $2 per person (age 5 and under are free).
