An American Legacy Lives On

The Winterthur of today is a living vision of collector and horticulturist Henry Francis du Pont, who opened his childhood home to the public in 1951. The 175 rooms of the house showcase a world-renowned collection of 90,000 antiques and decorative art objects made or used in America between 1640 and 1860. It serves as the stunning backdrop for a multitude of weddings and events just as it did more than a century ago. The Winterthur Garden, called the greatest naturalistic garden in North America, sits within a majestic thousand-acre estate. Its striking succession of seasonal blooms delights our clients year-round and etches an unimaginable experience for any event you host.
