      EVENT DETAILS
      Mother's Day at Poplar Forest

      Discover the feminine side of Poplar Forest at this Women of Poplar Forest Mother’s Day talk. Meet the mothers and daughters—both free and enslaved—who lived and worked on the property over the past 200 years, through true stories that have been documented in letters and through archaeological evidence. Get acquainted with the ladies of the house from Martha Wayles Jefferson, who, with her husband, Thomas Jefferson, inherited the plantation from her father in 1773, to Sally Watts, who became the mistress of the house in the 1940s, to Cate, one of the enslaved women living and working at Poplar Forest, and her daughter Hannah.

       

       

      Cost: Admission is free for mothers all day.
