Home Farm

$2,898.00

Speaking of fantasy, this is the so-called ‘home farm’ at Winterthur, the former home of Henry Francis du Pont. He and his father were aping 18th- and 19th-century English country houses when they dreamed this place up. It started as a Greek Revival, twelve-room mansion that they bought from a neighbor, and it ended up with 175 rooms.

They also bought up a few dozen local farms, eventually amassing 2500 acres of arable land. On a British estate, the ‘home farm’ was set aside to produce goods for the manor house, but I don’t know if this one ever served that purpose.

Today, Winterthur is our premier museum of Americana, where you can go to learn more than you ever wanted to know about soup tureens and trestle tables. I suppose that stuff needs to be stored somewhere.
