The history of Poplar Bark siding is also very interesting. History shows us that it dates back to the 17th century when poplar bark siding was incorporated as a protective exterior cladding for a variety of structures. During this period, sketches by English explorers and settlers detail encounters with North American Indians who used bark as a siding for their dwellings. For instance, the Waxhaw tribe, originally located in what is now Union and Lancaster counties of North and South Carolina, respectively, used bark cladding extensively on their huts.
