From the Dupont mansions in the Brandywine Valley to George Eastman's opulent upstate New York retreat, these are the homes of America's chemical millionaires.

During the Industrial Revolution, two of America's most prominent companies were Eastman Kodak and DuPont. The owners of these chemical giants celebrated their wealth in stunning homes far from the hustle and bustle of city life.

AMERICA'S CASTLES visits the opulent retreats of these giants of the chemical age. Go inside George Eastman's magnificent upstate New York retreat and marvel at the architectural details and stunning furnishings. Tour some of the many mansions built by the DuPont family, who shared the work and the wealth of their legendary company. Get a special behind-the-scenes tour of Longwood Gardens, and learn the hidden story of Winterthur, one of the many stunning homes the DuPonts built in their native Delaware.

It's an up-close look at the beautiful homes of some of the giants of American industry.
