Poplar Grove will be open Wednesday through Saturday in Spring 2022. Hours of operation will be from 9:30-2:30 p.m. Guided tours of the manor house are typically offered at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., and 1 p.m. and based upon volunteer availability. Please visit the Online Booking feature for guided tour time availability at least 24 hours in advance of your visit. A self-guided tour of the manor house is available at noon, and for day trippers, feel free to drop on by. 

Guided tours are limited to 15 persons, so that groups can move easily through the rooms of the manor house. Online bookings are limited to 10 persons per tour time, so that we have spaces available for those travelers whose schedules are more flexible and decide to drop by. See below for other ticket options that do not include a house tour.

Please arrive at the gift shop in the lower level of the manor house at least fifteen minutes before your scheduled tour time, or for other ticket options. You are welcome to arrive in advance of your scheduled tour time to view the exhibits, artist studios and stables prior to your tour, especially for those guests who are scheduled on the last tour of the day,, which is at 2 p.m.  

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, exhibits, artist studios, pastures and stables.

Entrance into the 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 conservation, education, and preservation.

NOTE: Poplar Grove schedules many activities throughout the year, including school programs, community events and festivals as well as a weekly farmers’ market. Such activities will impact a visitor’s experience, especially during the weekends of the Herb & Garden Fair and the Halloween Festival, so please check our Calendar of Events to arrange your visit around our major festivals, or choose to join us in the fun!
