Chapter Visit to Hagley – Sunday

Chapter Event – Invitation (Rescheduled – new date)

Chapter members have been invited to tour the historic and fully operational Machine Shop at the Hagley Museum DE, Sunday June 25th, commencing at 9:30am.

Covering 235 acres, the Hagley Museum is home to the first du Pont family house, powder yards and 19th century machine shop. There is an abundance of history, presented via live demonstrations. The tour will be conducted by our own John Smoyer, who is a Docent at the museum. John will demonstrate the use of water and steam power, belt-driven lathes and other heavy duty equipment, tools and process used by the du Pont mechanics in the development and production of gunpowder. The group is then able to visit the beautiful and historic main DuPont house, museum and gardens.

Spaces are limited for this very special and Chapter-members-only visit, please sign up promptly, by emailing
