The Georgian-style Delaware State House in Dover was completed in 1792. A 1740s brick house, outbuildings and a slave/tenant house are part of the John Dickinson Plantation. Also in Dover, the Air Mobility Command Museum is home to vintage planes dating from 1941 and artifacts reflecting the history of the Dover Air Force Base. Founded by Henry Francis du Pont, Winterthur is unusual as a museum because it was built as a showcase for his collections of priceless antiques and art but also as a place to entertain family and friends. The Hagley Museum in Wilmington encompasses the site of the original du Pont gunpowder mills, as well as an estate and gardens. Built in the early 1900s, Nemours Mansion in Wilmington was a gift from Alfred du Pont to his wife Alice. The Delaware Art Museum is famous for its Dale Chihuly arrangement of brilliant glass flowers. The charmingly old fashioned Lewes lies near Cape Henlopen State Park, on Delaware’s coastline.
