Nemours Estate: La Maison d’Amour

While other husbands may gift their wives with bouquets of flowers or strings of pearls, industrialist and philanthropist Alfred I. duPont bestowed his second wife, Alicia, with a 47,000-square-foot mansion modeled after Marie Antoinette’s Versailles retreat, Petit Trianon.
