Comment of the day

"The duPonts didn't live there for long. They moved out in 1967 after theives broke in and they were held at gun point. His wife Miren was forced to open the house safes. They were robbed of their jewelry and cash valued at $50,000.00 and his extremely rare coin collection valued in excess of $ 1.5 million. They abandoned their house immediately afterwards, donated it to the University of Pennsylvania and never came back. As it turns out the robbery may have saved them, and in particular their two small boys from a poisoned life on a toxic waste dump."-Evji108 [The Grove's Demolished Du Pont Estate Was Buried In Poison]
