Nestled in the heart of Delaware’s picturesque Brandywine Valley, halfway between New York City and Washington DC, Winterthur Museum & Country Estate stands a world set apart – a place where history lives on in spectacular gardens, romantic landscapes, and a breathtaking mansion filled with magnificent American antiques. Once the grand country estate of Henry Francis du Pont (1880–1969), the 175-room house is now open to the public and remains a rare national treasure, where beauty, art, and history combine. The garden Mr. du Pont created is a masterful example of naturalistic design, delighting and inspiring visitors in every season. Set amid nearly 1,000 acres of rolling pasture, the garden is the ideal locale for an equally memorable wedding celebration or special event.
