View showing the elegant four-story hotel completed in 1826 after the designs of Thomas U. Walter in Brandywine Springs, Delaware. Elegantly attired guests crowd the first floor porch, are visible in some upper floor windows, and walk and lounge on the grounds. A man on horseback, and a horse-drawn carriage arrive at the hotel near two dogs chasing each other in the driveway. The hotel served as a summer retreat for the well-to-do of the region. The building was razed by fire in 1853.
