Welcome to Nemours Mansion & Gardens, a 300-acre country estate of Alfred I. DuPont, the late industrialist and philanthropist for some 19th-century yuletide cheer.  An outstanding example of a French chateau in the style of Louis XVI, you will wander through the former Du Pont estate decked out for the holidays with Christmas trees, hand-painted ornaments and antique decorations.  Also, you will hear how Jesse and Alfred Du Pont celebrated the holidays, and glimpse historical artifacts, some of which have never before been displayed.  Many of the rooms featured in the tour will be decorated, as they would have been when Du Pont resided there in the early 1900s, while others will retain their traditional period decorations.  Christmas trees, garlands, sprays, paper filigree “quilling,” hand-painted ornaments, miniature churches, original holiday cards, a manger scene and original toys from the Du Pont estate all add to the old-fashioned holiday atmosphere.  Yuletide at Nemours Mansion will delight you with the grand traditions of the past and visions of holidays of old.  Your family and friends will be inspired by Alfred I.
