Tour Schedule & Prices

Welcome to Poplar Grove!

We are currently under mid-season hours of operation. (See below).  

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.

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