This illustrated talk looks at some of the notable houses and gardens of the du Ponts. In the 19th century and first half of the 20th century members of this family created a wide variety of country houses in the Brandywine Valley. They chose architects such as T.P. Chandler, Harrie Lindeberg, Albert Ives, and R. Brognard Okie. Among the houses discussed are St. Amour, Owls Nest, Eleutherian Mills, Bellevue, Winterthur and Granogue. Presented by Jeff Groff.
