Frederick Douglas House Tour

The Frederick Douglas National Historic Site preserves and interprets Cedar Hill, where Frederick Douglas lived from 1877 until his death in 1895. The centerpiece of the site is the historic house, which sits on top of a 50-foot hill and eight acres of the original estate. Restored to its 1895 appearance, the house is furnished with original objects that belonged to Frederick Douglas and other household members. Frederick Douglas is one of the most well known abolitionists domestically and internationally. His outreach continues to shape the meaning of freedom. You must be on a guided tour to get inside the house. Offered most days.
