Jacob Broom House, also known as Hagley, is the former house of Jacob Broom, a signer of the United States Constitution. It sits on a hill above the Brandywine Creek in New Castle County, Delaware, east of Greenville and south of Montchanin. It was sold to the Du Pont family, who built Eleutherian Mills along the creek below the house.

It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1974.[2][3]
