The Millrace is a podcast where we explore the past through the voices of people who lived it. Inspired by Hagley's 19th-century millrace—the water channel that powered the machinery on this site for over a hundred years—our podcast tells stories of enterprise and industry from Hagley's oral history collections.
For our inaugural series, we're stepping back in time 100 years to 1918. Using interviews from the Brandywine Oral History Project, we'll learn how the events of this explosive year changed the lives of the people who lived and worked along the Brandywine Creek. A new episode will air every other Friday, starting on August 31, 2018.
