Frederick Douglass National Historic Site

From 1877 to 1895, this was the home of Frederick Douglass, the Nation's leading 19th-century African American spokesman. Visitors to the site will learn more about his efforts to abolish slavery and his struggle for Human Rights, Equal Rights and Civil Rights for all oppressed people. Among Frederick Douglass' other achievements, he was U.S. minister to Haiti in 1889. Authorized Sept. 5, 1962, as Frederick Douglass Home; redesignated Feb. 12, 1988 as the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site.

Currently, all of the artifacts within the Frederick Douglass home are in storage due to ongoing repair work. Park rangers continue to lead tours of the empty Douglass home. While this is certainly a different type of tour, rangers are still relating the important stories about Frederick Douglass. Large format images of the furnished rooms are available for viewing, as well as historic photographs of the Douglass home. This enables visitors to see the progression of changes in the preservation of the home and learn about why additional work is necessary at this time. The artifacts will not return to the home until late 2006.
