Point of Interest Details

Creek House Center is located at 920 Grove Street. Originally part of the Beardsley Estate, Creek House was the stable and carriage house for Ruthmere mansion. The building housed the carriages and horses for two generations of Beardsley owners. The property was sold from the Beardsley family holdings to the Thompson family who by 1942 converted and expanded the original stables into a lovely five bedroom home overlooking the Christiana Creek. Since the 1970s, this location has been a part of Ruthmere Museum's campus property.

Creek House Center is used today as the Ruthmere Executive Director's residence.

This Tour has been sponsored by Wellfield Botanic Gardens, located at 1011 North Main Street, Elkhart, IN.
