PHASE 2 GUIDELINES
In consideration of our families, our staff and volunteers, our neighbors, and our community, Poplar Grove is taking steps to minimize the spread of COVID-19, and instead spreading the word to follow best practices outlined by local, state and federal agencies during Phase 2.
We hope to begin regularly scheduled tours at the end of Phase 2, currently extended until August 7th.
In the meantime, the Farmers’ Market will be open under new guidelines on Wednesday, May 27, 2020, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., and every Wednesday until the end of September, which has been extended until Wednesday, December 2nd.
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 tours, 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 Entrance 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.
