      Surveyed by Shirley Olson on July 13, 2001.

      Directions - from Raleigh, N.C.: South on Hwy 401 about 8 miles, angle left on to Old Stage Rd. and continue south about 2 miles to Poplar Springs Church on the left. The old cemetery is along side of the church on Old Stage Rd.; the newer and larger cemetery is hidden behind the church up a paved road that runs about 100 yards to the burial locations.

      This is an African American church and cemetery, located in a formerly rural area which is now a suburban neighborhood. This is an old church, founded in 1871, a few years after the end of the Civil War. From humble beginnings in a brush arbor the church has grown and flourished and is now a magnificent brick edifice. Alongside and joined to the large new church built in 1996 is the beautiful old brick church built in 1931 which replaced the small frame church that preceded it.

      The old cemetery is not in good condition. Many graves are unmarked, and some of the stones are teetering over. There are plans to restore the fallen stones and determine, if possible, the names of those in the unmarked graves. At this time we have recorded only the old cemetery and at least 50 per cent of these graves are unmarked. Unfortunately the church has no records of the old cemetery.
