Friends of Frederick Douglass
The National Park Service can't care for Frederick Douglass's house and memory alone. We need you. There is no other way we will be able to make sure Douglass's house and ideas live on.
The Friends of the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site is dedicated to preserving and sharing the legacy of Frederick Douglass.

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.
