Winterthur Point-to-Point Steeplechase
Established by Henry Francis du Pont, Winterthur Estate is not only home to the leading museum of decorative arts in America, but is also the venue for the stand-out social event of the Delaware season: the Point-to-Point Steeplechase race. Nestled in the heart of the beautiful Brandywine Valley, the 60-acre Winterthur Estate comes alive on race days, with a parade of historic carriages, bag piping, numerous kids activities, and - of course - the thunderous sounds of a steeplechase event. Visitors should brace themselves for a classy day out: elegant picnics, erudite conversation, and 'race day' hats abound during this spectacle of pageantry in the Brandywine Valley.
