(December 9, 16, 23 & 30 2014)
On Tuesday evenings in December beginning December 9, the du Pont family residence will stay open into the evening and invite guests to see the splendor of the holiday display by the glow of candles and twilight. Small groups will be guided through the house and get an intimate glimpse of the holiday season as the du Ponts would have experienced it after a day of shopping, gift-making, calling, and merry-making. Tours will begin at the Visitor Center followed by a ride through the powder yards to the residence. Reservations requested, call (302) 658-2400, ext. 261. Tours begin at 5, 5:30, and 6 p.m. Admission is $10 for non-members and free for members.
