During the first half of the twentieth century, Henry Francis du Pont, American businessman and design enthusiast, became interested in the beauty and variety of early American architecture. Inspired by the designs, he began expanding his house, Winterthur, with a range of classic American architectural elements, many in the form of entire rooms rescued from early American houses before demolition. His beautiful home became the Winterthur Museum in 1951.
