Poplar Grove School
Poplar Grove Elementary School was one of 17 African American schools built between 1918-1930 in Union County. Poplar Grove Elementary School was originally a four-room school house. An additional room was added in 1941. That added room still stands as a private residence and is the last intact portion of any of the 17 African American schools in Union County. Poplar Grove Elementary School possesses several features of a Rosenwald School, though it has not been proven that it received support from the Julius Rosenwald Fund. Poplar Grove produced the largest number of college graduates (10) of any African American school in Union County.
