I was fortunate enough to visit the Winterthur Gardens during the Christmas season, not only are the 60 something acre gardens absolutely beautifully manicured ,but the mansion, now a museum, is just as beautiful. Winterthur was the residence of the DuPont family in the early 1900’s and is located in Delaware near the Brandywine river.
The house displays many different artifacts and art displays throughout the mansion, collected by Henry Francis DuPont, himself. To see the Yuletide at Winterthur, there are tours on a daily basis, where you will get to learn more about the history of the mansion and how each room in the mansion was used. The guides are very friendly and very knowledgeable. The tours allow photography and I can’t imagine that anyone visiting here would not feel the Holiday spirit after viewing this.
Each room is thoughtfully decorated with the most beautiful colors and warmth with sparkling lights throughout.
My favorite room had to be the conservatory tree and the way it was decorated. I had never seen such a large tree as that and it was meticulously decorated.
See my other posts on the Longwood Christmas and the Longwood Chrysanthemum Festival. The gardens are also located very close to the Brandywine river and Winterthur Gardens and Museum, in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania and were owned by the DuPont family.
I hope you enjoyed my post, please feel free to leave any comments on any other places you think I should visit for the Holiday season, and definitely stop by to check out these beautiful DuPont family gardens and mansions if you are in the area.
