Long Range Interpretive Plan
Frederick Douglass NHS's LRIP is how we plan to tell Douglass' story. In it we lay out what programs we would like to develop, what projects we would like to undertake, and how we plan to teach about Douglass for the next several years. If you would like to know what we are planning, the LRIP is a good place to start.
Did You Know?
Family was a big part of Frederick Douglass' life at Cedar Hill. By the 1890s his four surviving children (a fifth had died as a baby) all lived in Washington, D.C. Between them they eventually gave Douglass twenty one grand kids, filling the halls of Cedar Hill with noise and activity. Douglass can be seen here with his grandson Joseph, who went on to become a famous violinist.
