Hagley is the former industrial site of the original black powder works of the DuPont Company, founded in Delaware in 1802 and powered by the natural resources that surrounded it. A visit to Hagley can last from ninety minutes to a full day. The museum offers free parking, lunch and snack facilities, picnic areas, and transportation to three major interpretive areas.
