Francis Irenee du Pont (1873-1942) began developing this site as an experimental laboratory for his newly-created Delaware Chemical Engineering Company in 1915. Du Pont used the lab to continue his research with smokeless gunpowder and other projects. Prior to 1915, he had served as a du Pont Company Vice President and first director of the DuPont Experimental Station. This Mission Revival style structure was designed by Philadelphia architect Robeson Lea Perot and constructed by the A.S. Reed and Brother Company of Wilmington. The Harper-Thiel Electroplating Company purchased the property in 1946 and operated it through 2000.
