Also known in the past as the Albert and Elizabeth Beardsley Residence, the Ruthmere is the most popular historic residence in the city of Elkhart, Indiana. It was built in 1910 in the Beaux Arts style and is now operating as a museum.

The Ruthmere was created and named in memory of the Beardsley?s only daughter, Ruth, who died when she was just 7 months old. It was a center for social gatherings in the area until the couple?s death in 1924.

Listed in the National register of Historic Places in 1978, the Ruthmere features a series of bedrooms. When it was purchased by the Beardsley Foundation in 1967, it was restored to its old grandeur that might have been changed with the change of ownership after the couple?s deaths.
