Hagley Museum

Hagley is the former industrial site of the original black powder works of the DuPont Company, founded in Delaware in 1802. Once powered by the natural resources that surrounded it, the gunpowder works today sits amid 235 acres of wooded rolling hills along the rushing Brandywine River, and features hundreds of stone remnants of the gunpowder industry, dozens of restored buildings associated with the business, and the first du Pont family home built in America. Here, for more than 200 years, the DuPont Company and family experimented, innovated, and pursued the American Dream. Face coverings are required at this location.
