Poplar Grove on NPR Today

National Public Radio's "All Things Considered" is running a story on Poplar Grove this afternoon, by senior reporter
Elizabeth Blair. Elizabeth was at Poplar Grove on the first morning that our team began removing documents from the house, and has been following the story over the past several weeks ... it should be a very interesting report.

Barring breaking news developments, this is set to run nationwide at the end of the second hour of "All Things Considered."

Digital media producer Trey Graham is also creating a feature on the NPR site that will include photos taken by their photographer, dramatic readings from some of the Poplar Grove documents, and other special features.

Postscript: If you missed today's broadcast, it is available online, along with the special Web feature, at

WOW! I found you through NPR. I myself am a historian, specializing in Public History and I have to say, this is an AMAZING project for your students to be involved in. Have you thought about taking it to a conference? AAM, AASLH, or National Council on Public History. I'm sure we'd all benefit from your research and unique experiences. I'll be watching the blog!
