DE Attraction

Winterthur, the family home of the du Ponts.
Almost sixty years ago, H.F. du Pont opened his childhood home to the public. Winterthur has been noted as the "premier museum of American decorative arts".  It houses a collection of 85,000 objects that were made or used in America between about 1640 and 1860.
