Winterthur Museum displays the world's premier collection of American decorative arts of 1640 to 1860. The Winterthur Garden is a masterpiece of 20th-century American naturalism. The museum and garden were created by Henry Francis du Pont, who was born at Winterthur in 1880. Henry Francis du Pont died in 1969 at age 88, leaving the museum, garden, library and educational programs as his legacy. Today, Winterthur is a national treasure, providing education and enjoyment for all who visit.
