HomeGrown 01/31/10 – Cultural Landscapes & Dupont Homes and Gardens

HomeGrown dips into history this week with a discussion on preserving our historical and cultural landscapes – and the preservation of some of the nation’s great estate homes and gardens.

Maggie Lidz, author of “The Duponts: Houses and Gardens in the Brandywine 1900-1951,” talks about these great legacies in Delaware and Pennsylvania. Downloadable MP3
