Why You Should Go...

Tour the E.I. du Pont family ancestral home, stroll through the formal French garden and see spectacular views of massive stone gunpowder mills and an operating waterwheel when you discover the Hagley Museum.

Watch dramatic demonstrations of a water turbine, a steam engine, and a working machine shop. Visit a restored worker’s home and schoolhouse on Workers’ Hill, and see demonstrations and exhibitions when exploring the grounds.

Hagley is the site of the gunpowder works founded by E. I. du Pont in 1802, located on 235 acres along the banks of the Brandywine. This example of early American industry includes restored mills, a workers’ hill, and the ancestral home and garden of the du Pont family. The lure of Hagley’s stunning riverside landscape reveals a remarkable combination of experiences for visitors to bring this chapter of American history alive.
