Mt Cuba Center

A Colonial Revival manor house built by Mr and Mrs Lammot du Pont Copeland in 1935. The garden and terraces were originally designed by Thomas W Sears. In 1950s, the Copelands hired Marian C. Coffin to design the Round Garden. There is a swimming pool in the shape of a Maltese cross at the centre of the Round Garden (visible if you zoom in on the map below). Seth Kelsey designed the woodland wildflower gardens in the 1960s.
