Longwood Gardens are situated 120 miles from Washington (or 150 from New York) in a cozy little town Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. Russian speaking tourists have named this place DuPont Gardens. Although these beautiful gardens were bought by DuPont in 1906 in order to save the forests from being cut down and that was he who opened greenhouses and fountains there, but for most Americans these gardens are still Longwood Gardens.
