Brandywine Tour

Take a journey through the historic DuPont Company black powder yards and the garden and grounds of the first du Pont family home in America. This tour will show guests what makes Hagley unique—the black powder yards, the historic machinery, and the original home of the du Pont family in America. Guests will see demonstrations of our nineteenth-century machine shop, watch a water turbine bring our eight-ton iron roll mills to life, and witness a black powder explosion. On the second half of the tour, guests will visit the du Pont family home, the first office, and their first garden and learn about how the family lived, worked, and played at Hagley.
