Tea Time with Ruthmere


"Tea Time with Ruthmere" was a weekly live, virtual program that aired on our Facebook page during the closed period of 2020. Each episode featured unique programs, guest experts from Ruthmere's staff, and fun interactions between museum professionals and the viewers! Several episodes also gave behind-the-scenes looks at seldom viewed places and pieces within Ruthmere and the Havilah Beardsley House.

There will be no new "Tea Time" episodes for the foreseeable future; however, check out all of our past episodes below or on our YouTube channel
