About Longwood Gardens
In 1906, industrialist Pierre S. du Pont (1870-1954) purchased a small farm near Kennett Square, PA, to save a collection of historic trees from being sold for lumber. Throughout his life, Mr. du Pont indulged his passion for gardening, turning his farm into a magnificent horticultural showplace. Today, Longwood Gardens is one of the world's great horticultural displays, encompassing 1,077 acres of gardens, woodlands, meadows, fountains and a 4.5-acre conservatory. It is also home to an impressive array of horticulture education programs for all ages and levels of interest. The Gardens also have long served as the backdrop for showcasing top performing artists. Since Pierre du Pont first welcomed his good friend John Philip Sousa to the Conservatory Gardens in 1922, Longwood has hosted some of the finest artists from various performing genres, including Martha Graham, Van Cliburn Medalists, Symphony Orchestras, Grammy-winners and more. Longwood Gardens is located on Route 1 near Kennett Square, PA and is open daily. Admission is free with purchase of tickets to Annie Get Your Gun. Otherwise, they are $18 for adults; $15 for seniors (age 62 and older) and $8 for ages 5-18 (or with valid student ID). Ages 4 and under are free.
