    1936 side-gabled frame schoolhouse. Poplar Hill School is significant for its role in the history of public education for African-Americans in Prince George’s County during the era of government-sanctioned segregation. Poplar Hill School was the second school for “colored” students in the area, replacing a small one-room schoolhouse located approximately 600 feet to the northwest.
