History’s Depths are Limitless

At Poplar Forest, we see history in the present tense—as a boundless exploration of both our nation’s promise and our ability to combat problems, extending from Jefferson’s time directly to life today. By continuing to uncover more details of Jefferson’s life, the lives of the enslaved people who labored for him, and the land where they lived, we help the public gain a greater understanding of our country’s past and future.

We believe Mr. Jefferson would be proud of our efforts to share the extraordinary story of Poplar Forest with more and more people, more and more deeply, every year.
