The African-American Experience at Poplar Hill in the 18th & 19th Century

 

 

"A Clear Path" was a special project funded by Prince George's Heritage, Inc. The project tasks included developing a special walking tour and brochure that highlights the experiences of African Americans who worked on the plantation both prior to and immediately after emancipation. The surviving out buildings and interior features of the historic house trace the "footprints" of the African Americans that lived on the estate.

"Breaking the Chains" was another project supported through a grant from Prince George's Heritage, Inc. This project was created as a result of the observance of the 200th anniversary of the Abolition of the British Slave Trade.
