Born enslaved, Frederick Douglass sought freedom and against all odds rose to a life of honor by becoming a statesman, journalist, activist, hero, and more.

The Frederick Douglass National Historic Site preserves Cedar Hill, where Frederick Douglass 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 includes 8 acres of the original estate. Restored to its 1895 appearance, the house is furnished with original objects that belonged to Frederick Douglass and other household members.

A typical visit lasts about 1.5 hours and includes touring the historic house, exhibits and a film at the visitors center, and exploring the grounds

Special Instructions:  Meet to carpool at the TVIH office at 8:50AM. We will leave at 9AM to drive to Anacostia. Parking is available at the site. A group tour of the house will begin at 10:45AM and last approximately 30 minutes. Before the tour if possible, we will watch a 19 minute film.  After the tour we will look at the exhibits and walk around the grounds.  Leave by 12:30PM for lunch at Thai Orchid's Kitchen.
