The old Welfare Home, now the Delaware Hospital for the Chronically Ill, on Sunnyside Road in Smyrna. The hospital was built in 1933 using money donated by Alfred I. duPont. DuPont convinced Governor C. Douglass Buck to commission his son as the architect. The curving limestone portico resembles the temple of Love at Nemours, one of the most prominent duPont family estates. Photo by xzmattzx.
