Kennett Square PA  – Longwood Gardens

Longwood Gardens consists of over 1,000 acres of gardens, woodlands, and meadows in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. I have visited there a couple of times.  It was the home of Pierre DuPont for most of the early 1900s. He spent a considerable portion of his vast fortune on the lands and the buildings but he had much more to pass on to his heirs. Some are still living lavishly off his wealth even today.
