In 1946, David Bruce, a prominent diplomat, purchased the property, but sold it in 1950 to Royd Sayers a retired Georgetown physician, and his wife Edna Sayers. In 1954, the Archdiocese of Washington purchased the property on which they established Resurrection Cemetery on 100 acres. The remaining 136 acres were sold to John and Sara Walton. The Waltons were the last family that made their home at Poplar Hill and it was this family that created the Foundation and put the mechanisms in place to open up this 220-year-old house to the public as a historic house museum.
