Weekend garden events
This is the final weekend of holiday festivities at Winterthur, the historic home of H.F. du Pont located north of Wilmington, Del.
Du Pont owned several houses, but only Winterthur was considered "home," where family and friends gathered each year to celebrate the holidays.
This year, a series of rooms in the main house focuses on the winter of 1937-38 when in addition to all the holiday festivities, the du Ponts were preparing for the wedding of their daughter, Pauline Louise, to Alfred Harrison.
Winterthur is open 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday. Formore information, visit winterthur.org.
