Facts

  • The building also contains the Hotel DuPont, which opened in 1913 along with the Playhouse, one of Wilmington's most important performance venues at the time.
  • The Hotel DuPont is clad in brick and stone. Decorative window balconies relieve its vertical lines. The lobby is of travertine with a 14-carat gold leaf ceiling.
  • The DuPont Building covers an entire block and is designed in a modified Italian Renaissance style. Built in phases, the yellow-brick section at Tenth and Market Streets was completed in 1907.
  • Part of the DuPont Headquarters complex, the DuPont Building is connected with the Nemours Building by a tunnel under the street and by an upper-level bridge.
