The DuPont Mansion is located in Old Louisville, just minutes from Churchill Downs and across the street from Central Park (initially known as Dupont Square). The family name is the same of those famous chemical magnates in Delaware and in fact it was two brothers from this clan who constructed this beautiful Italianate Renaissance building in 1879. However, the family only stayed here more or less for 25 years when the property changed hands. It remained as a private estate until the end of the 20th-Century, when the mansion was completely refurbished into a B&B. Today it has modern essentials such as climate-control temperature and Internet access, yet it stays true to its Victorian roots with touches like chandeliers and authentic furnishings from the late 19th century.
This B&B bills itself as "A Statement in Casual Elegance" and, having been built in 1884, it is a great example of Victorian architecture with its period furnishings and hand craftsmanship. All the rooms here have a work desk, wireless internet access, cable TV and the romance of a fireplace. And with Central Park just across the street, guests can enjoy a game of tennis or just people watch. Some of the guest rooms have a Jacuzzi and the carriage house has a kitchen. Another nice touch is the B&B's social hour, it's held in the parlor every evening.
