  • Iron Orchid Photography Kennett Square
    Though Longwood Gardens owes its current incarnation to the tireless efforts of industrialist, philanthropist, and conservationist Pierre du Pont, the property?s history stretches back to precolonial days. The Peirce family purchased the land from William Penn himself in 1700, and by the end of the century the Quakers had already begun developing an arboretum on the premises. In the century that followed, the homestead was purchased by an ambitious 36-year-old du Pont in 1906. Throughout the next 30 years, du Pont built a legacy rife with extravagant European-style fountains, a picturesque 600-foot garden walk, and 40 indoor and outdoor gardens. Today, visitors experience a bit of du Pont?s passion for the tropical flora of the Americas during jaunts through the property?s 1,077 colorful acres, where they run into everything from flowering trees and delicate hybrids to carnivorous pitcher plants and an 86-acre Meadow Garden. In addition to cultivating lush flora, the garden?s stewards also encourage growing minds with an ever-changing roster of events, such as internationally acclaimed musical acts and immersive educational experiences.
