Ruthmere Museum celebrates 40 years


It was like a scene ripped out of The Great Gatsby.

The Ruthmere Museum held a 40th anniversary lawn party today.  Some folks played croquet and others just looked fancy in their vintage outfits.

That's not all, the historic Elkhart landmark used the party as a way to show off some new exhibits.

"We're opening a brand new teapot exhibit that's called tea anyone, its on the history of tea service, teapots anything to do with tea consumption," says Bill Firstenberger of the Ruthmere Foundation.

The new tea exhibit will be on display til November 10.
