Significance: Poplar Hill, or His Lordship's Kindness as it is currently referred to, is an excellent example of an 18th-century, five-part Georgian plantation house. This elegantly detailed residence is among the finest examples of Georgian architecture in Prince George's County. The former plantation also includes a number of original outbuildings including: privy, smoke house, wash house, slave hospital and pigeon cote. It is also significant for its association with some of the county's most prominent and influential families, namely the Darnells, Sewells and Daingerfields.
