Poplar Grove

Andrew Jackson Donelson built Poplar Grove on land adjacent to Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage property. The home was completed in 1826 and his wife Emily died there in 1837. Now known as Tulip Grove it was purchased by the Ladies’ Hermitage Association in 1964. A view of the west front is pictured below in 1940.
