Tour Schedule & Prices

Back Parlor

Welcome to Poplar Grove!  

Currently, Poplar Grove is under low-season hours of operation, while we prepare for the Merry Little Christmas Festival. Open for Saturday tours only. Please scroll below for hours of operation for low-season Saturday tour times.

The Manor House and outbuildings are under the auspices of Poplar Grove Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit. All funds generated through Manor House and Stable tours, memberships, school programs, Farmers’ Market vendor fees, rental facilities, and festivals provide the revenue to maintain and preserve the historic Manor House, outbuildings, heritage art exhibits, artist studios, pastures and stables.

Entrance for our property is on the South side of the Manor House, where the Farmers’ Market and Poplar Grove Plantation signs are posted.  If you drive past the Manor House, you have gone too far.

Thank you for supporting our conservation, education, and preservation efforts!
