A special year is being planned for the 2019 Ruthmere Holiday Season “Christmas by Design.”  Ruthmere will be showcasing 9 of Elkhart County's local artistic talents who have been invited to decorate a room at Ruthmere Mansion for the holidays. Visitors will be given the opportunity to vote for their favorite room. The designer whose room receives the most votes will be awarded $1,000 to donate to their favorite local non-profit charity. Ruthmere's Holiday Tours will delight you and at the same time give the opportunity to benefit our community.
