Frederick Douglass National Historic Site
1411 W Street SE, Washington, DC 20020
The Frederick Douglass National Historic Site, administered by the National Park Service, preserves the home and estate of Frederick Douglass, one of the most prominent African Americans of the 19th century. Douglass lived in this house, which he named Cedar Hill, from 1877 until his death in 1895. The site includes an interpretive visitor center and a reconstruction of Douglass's "Growlery," a small stone building in which he secluded himself while writing and studying.
