Frederick Douglass National Historic Site

Frederick Douglass remains a towering figure in the annals of history for his long-established fight against the practice of slavery in America. The former slave gained his freedom in 1838, marking the beginning of a journey that still astounds to this day. Cedar Hill, his former home in Washington, D.C., is now a National Historic Site. The Frederick Douglass National Historic Site, administered by the National Park Service, currently preserves the estate of Douglass. The famous abolitionist lived in Cedar Hill from 1877-1888 until his death in 1895.
