Meet the Du Pont's of the Brandywine Valley, DE
Wilmington, DE

Thursday, June 1st, through Sunday, June 4th, 2017 Printer Friendly Version Of This Page

The du Pont name commands dominance in present day Wilmington and the Brandywine Valley, however, this was not always the case. The emigrant du Pont's were largely ignored until after the Civil War. Through their paternal financial generosity and pursuit of raising standards in literacy, fair labor practices and endowment for the sick and handicapped, and in recent years retirement benefits and ownership participation, the Du Pont's have raised the standard of living through the years. Join us as we visit the estates of this prominent family and learn about the characters through the generations of this influential family.
