Longwood Gardens has some amazing things – flowers for sure.  But that’s not the only thing that is amazing.  So is this:

It’s the organ.  And instead of trying to describe it myself, here’s the description from the website:

Composed of 10,010 pipes divided into 146 ranks, the Longwood Organ is the largest Aeolian organ ever constructed in a residential setting. Pierre du Pont was an organ aficionado who, in 1930, replaced the original organ with a much larger, custom-designed Aeolian model that remains in Longwood’s Conservatory to this day.
