Fodor's Expert Review Read House and Gardens

New Castle Garden

A signer of both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, George Read built this 22-room, 14,000-square-foot, Federal-style home in 1801. Period furniture, gilded fanlights, silver doorknobs, carved woodwork, and relief plasterwork decorate the interior. Lovely formal gardens surround the residence.
