#3 of 9 in Historic Sites in Wilmington
Poplar Grove Plantation is a peanut plantation by the Topsail sound in Scotts Hill near Wilmington in Pender County, North Carolina. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places listings in North Carolina on July 16, 1979.
The plantation was originally owned by the widow of Cornelius Harnett. Later, the property which once included Figure Eight Island became the home of the Foy family, an American family of French Huguenot descent, from 1795 until 1971. The original plantation house was destroyed in a fire. The current house, a 12 room Greek Revival-style mansion, was built in the early 1850s by Joseph Mumford Foy.
The Plantation is now under the care of Poplar Grove Foundation, Inc. Poplar Grove opened as a museum to the public in 1980.

  • Poplar Grove Plantation is beautiful and one of the most interesting places to go. I love the plantation house. I've toured the house several times during the years and it never disappoints. I like that the plantation is having amazing events now too. We went to the food truck round up and had an amazing Saturday. Dogs are welcome too! Just need more events and I'll be here every weekend.
  • Thoroughly enjoyed our informative tour with Chrissy! The gift shop has interesting articles too. The family could perhaps have kept a replica of the slave quarters for historical accuracy. Looks like a wonderful venue for a wedding!! Will definitely return with family and friends! Thank you!!
