About the Park

Bellevue Hall commands a grand view of this historic estate, and its present form reflects alterations made by William du Pont, Jr. Mr. du Pont surrounded his home with the finest facilities: tennis courts, equestrian stables, gardens, and a picturesque pond, amid woodlands and fields overlooking the Delaware River. Mansion tours are offered periodically, detailing how Mr. du Pont transformed the mansion from a Gothic Revival castle into a replica of President James Madison's home, Montpelier. The park was acquired by the State of Delaware in 1976.
