Hagley Museum

My son's class took a field trip to the Hagley Museum.   Located on 235 acres along the banks of the Brandywine River in Wilmington, Delaware, Hagley is the site of the gunpowder works founded by E. I. du Pont in 1802. This example of early American industry includes restored mills, a workers' community, and the ancestral home and gardens of the du Pont family.

 This workshop reminded me of my grandfather's shop.  It smelled of wood and oil and creativity.

 What do you suppose the top door was used for?

 not too bad for iphone pictures...

As the children walked on the metal bars our teacher captured a teaching moment to point out that these train tracks are like God's Word. 

In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.  Proverbs 3:6

Coram Deo,
