In September, the Brandywine brought a historic 23-foot flood to Hagley, inundating our powder yards and Visitor Center. After the water receded, the damage left behind was devastating. We will rebuild even stronger the stone walls, fill in areas that were washed away, rebuild wooden bridges, and get the systems in our buildings back in operation, but this will take time and resources. Most importantly, everyone at Hagley stayed safe and our collections areas stayed dry.
Your support for Hagley is more important now than ever, to aid us in this important work to rebuild. Despite the flood, we have much to be thankful for!
