The Ruthmere Foundation Inc. strives to inspire the imagination and promote excellence in fine arts, architecture and historic preservation to advocate life-long learning and the entrepreneurial spirit. In 2006 it purchased the Havilah Beardsley House, the 1848 home of Elkhart’s founder, with the intent to execute a full-scale historic restoration.

With funding from ECCF, the purchase and installation of a museum-quality environmental control HVAC system will help preserve this oldest residence in the city, allowing its use as a venue for high-profile traveling exhibits that will provide Elkhart County residents and visitors with an opportunity to enhance local education, arts and culture.
