AAA Editor Notes
Nemours Estate is 3.5 mi. n.w. to Alapocas Dr. and SR 141 S. (Powder Mill Rd.). The modified Louis XVI chateau was built in 1909-10 by Alfred I. du Pont. The 47,000-square-foot mansion contains European antiques, tapestries, Oriental rugs and paintings as well as several of A.I. du Pont's innovations.

The 222-acre estate is a fine example of formal French gardens. Admission includes full access to all open areas of the estate, including Nemours Mansion, gardens, grounds and the Chauffeur's Garage. Interpretive staff enhance self-guiding tours.
