Home to an array of intriguing museums, historical landmarks, extravagant botanical gardens and more. Dominating this area are the mansions and gardens of the du Pont Family.

The du Ponts were recognized as a family which has made the neighborhood of Wilmington, Delaware one of the chief centers of horticulture in the United States. They have been one of the richest families in the United States since the mid-19th century, when the du Pont family founded its fortune in the gunpowder business. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, it expanded its wealth through the chemical industry and the automotive industry, with substantial interests in the DuPont company, General Motors, and various other corporations.
