Discover 240 acres of history along the banks of the Brandywine River at Hagley, the original duPont mills, estate, and gardens. Hagley provides a unique glimpse into American life at home and at work in the 19th century. The museum offers a diversity of restorations, exhibits, and live demonstrations that appeal to visitors of all ages. Demonstrations include a massive water wheel, a vintage steam engine, a machine shop, and more. On the hill above the powder yards is Eleutherian Mills, the charming Georgian-style 1803 residence of E. I. duPont. A French-style garden completes the world of this 19th-century mill owner and his family.
