Hagley's Gingerbread House Contest 2018

See the winners and all the stunning entries in Hagley's 2018 Gingerbread House Contest! 

These beautiful gingerbread creations are housed in Santa's Workshop on the second floor of the Visitor Center. Entries came from local families, adults, kids, and businesses, and the quality and creativity of these wonderful houses gave visitors a real challenge to vote on their favorites! 

The results of the voting are in, and the winners are:
1st place: Michele Mitchell                           
2nd place: Nicole Hemphill
3rd place: Olga & Lucy Crowther

The structures will be on display through January 1. 

Hagley offers plenty of activities this holiday season that the whole family can enjoy.

Experience the du Pont ancestral home decorated for the holidays and "The Magic of Miniatures” exhibition, featuring a whimsically detailed dollhouse inhabited by miniature teddy bears!

On December 11, 12, 18, 19, 26, & 27, take a Twilight Tour at Hagley and enjoy a rare opportunity to see Eleutherian Mills, the first du Pont family home built in America, dressed for the holidays and illuminated with softly glowing lights.
