Description

Perched on a hill overlooking a sprawling riverside estate on the outskirts of Wilmington, the Hagley Museum and Library tell the story of the gunpowder works founded here in 1802 by E. I. du Pont. From restored mills to the du Pont ancestral residence, Eleutherian Mills, visitors are treated to both a glimpse of early factories in America and the life of the first Delaware du Ponts who helped spur on the Industrial Revolution in this country. Enjoy a leisurely stroll around the gardens and catch exhibits that range in theme from explosives to DuPOnt innovations and patented inventions on a well-rounded tour of this historic estate.
