Butler County chose this bluff and the surrounding area as the county seat in 1849 and named it Poplar Bluff. The beautiful trees growing on the natural bluff were tulip poplars.

According to legend, early travelers on Black River called it the poplar bluff. The tree is one of Missouri's most valuable trees. It is native to this area and is also called yellow poplar. Though known as a poplar, the tree is a member of the magnolia family. Early in May it is covered with yellow tulip-shaped flowers with touches of orange and light green.
