Free Tour of Poplar Hill Mansion @ Poplar Hill Mansion
1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
This beautiful Federal period manor house was built circa 1800 and is Salisbury Maryland’s oldest home. Now operated as a museum, the home was originally built by Major Levin Handy on a part of the tract called Pemberton’s Good Will. Luckily, this house was far enough removed from the great fires in the center of town during the mid 19th century that it escaped destruction. The two-story, five-bay frame house is richly decorated dwelling retaining a high percentage of its original woodwork. The bold block cornices, intricate fanlight entrance and Palladian style windows are prominent exterior features. The interior spaces are distinguished by a wealth of neoclassical carved woodwork and has recently been restored to its original color scheme and furnished true to its period.
 
When you tour with us we ask that you bring along a non-perishable food item to share with our local food bank, The Joseph House.
