Delaware's Industrial Brandywine

Delaware’s Industrial Brandywine is a project produced by the Hagley Library with support from the Delaware Industrial History Initiative, the Delaware Humanities Forum, and the National Endowment of the Humanities.

The goal of the project is to fully document businesses that benefited from the unique geography of the Brandywine River along its eight-mile stretch in Delaware. Currently, the database holds over one hundred records of individual businesses that operated on the Brandywine from the 17th to the 20th century.
