There was indeed a place called Dupont. Dupont was an old factory that was located in present day Carl Junction, MO., right next to Center Creek. When I was a child back in the 70's, there was still an old stone clubhouse, swimming pool (named Spiva and dated at 1922-the name "Spiva Pool" and the date are still etched into stone at the pool), a pool house, an old staircase in the bluffs behind the clubhouse leading down to the pool, many factory buildings & wharehouses and a railway connecting it all. The clubhouse was destroyed about 15 years ago to make way for a housing development. The staircase is still in the bluffside, the pool is still there, but the pool house has been knocked down by vandals. You can still find the remnants of various buildings spread out along the old railway bed throughout the countryside.
