Chester County’s Brandywine Valley is an inspiring place.
The story of the Du Pont family and their philanthropic legacy unfolds throughout the countryside. The region is home to Longwood Gardens, the magnificent inspiration of Pierre S. du Pont. Other Du Pont treasures: Hagley, Nemours and Winterthur also grace our countryside. Three generations of the famed artistic Wyeth family were inspired here and the Brandywine River Museum houses the work of N.C., Andrew and Jamie Wyeth among other American artists. Media giant QVC is headquartered in Chester County, producing 24-hour broadcasts and offering behind-the-scenes studio tours. Local wineries have flourished and the Brandywine Valley Wine Trail features tours, tastings, special events and more. And that's only half the story!
