ABOUT MONTCHANIN VILLAGE
The village of Montchanin is not so much a hamlet as a microcosm of American history. Once part of the Winterthur estate, it was named for Alexandrine de Montchanin, grandmother of the founder of the DuPont Gunpowder Company. One of the few remaining villages of its kind, Montchanin Village is comprised of 11 carefully restored buildings dating from 1799 to 1910.
