Winterthur, an American country estate, is the former home of Henry Francis du Pont (1880-1969), an avid antiques collector and horticulturist. In the early 20th century, H. F. du Pont and his father, Henry Algernon du Pont, designed Winterthur in the spirit of 18th- and19th-century European country houses.
A visit there today proved to be most interesting, one of the reasons being I thought I knew the paths through the gardens. Well, they moved them, actually a good idea for a hot afternoon, because I was able to stay in lots of shady areas. They have also added a feature--a small group tour of one floor in the museum is included in general admission now. There you see displayed actual rooms moved from houses in all 13 of the original colonies, along with antiques from a collection of 85,000 objects.
Here's a sneak preview of what you would see on the grounds and in the museum.
