The Ballroom, which re-opened in October 2005 after extensive renovations, was originally constructed in 1929 to house Longwood’s pipe organ and serve as a venue for concerts, lectures and dinners.
Once used by the du Ponts for dances and dinner parties, this expansive and airy hall retains its original sunken marble floor, which is typically flooded with a few inches of water to beautifully reflect the ever-changing seasonal displays.
Nestled in a frame of clipped arborvitae and towering trees, the historic Open Air Theatre has hosted countless theatrical performances and concerts since it debuted in 1914.
