Charles Dickens Visits the Ruthmere Mansion,

Elkhart, Indiana.  

through December 30, 2015 

The Ruthmere,  Home of the Beardsley Family, in Elkhart, Indiana, now a 1908 period home museum, has been changed into a Charles Dicken's classic, " A Christmas Carol".  A team of designers has transformed the home into the classic for the 2015 Christmas season.

As you enter the home you will see the Top Hat and Overcoat of Ebenezer Scrooge, draped on a chair.  From there, you will see signs of Tiny Tim, the Fezzwig Ball, and the Gost of Christmas Past, Present and Future. Information cards are placed strategically throughout the museum home, telling  the story of "A Christmas Carol".

Guided tours are Tuesday - Sunday,  during the Christmas Season.


Saturday, 10:00 am to 3:00 pm 

Sunday, 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
