Fees & Reservations

Tickets

Do I need a ticket?

Only to view the house. The visitor center and grounds are unticketed.

Should I reserve a ticket?

If you have more than 10 people in your group the answer is "YES!," reservations are required. (maximum 60 people)

If you have 10 or fewer we still strongly recommend tickets. True, any unreserved tour tickets are available on a first come first served basis, but during busy times of the year that's not many.

The Growlery

Behind Cedar Hill is a reconstruction of the "Growlery," where Frederick Douglass retreated to work and "growl" when he was in the mood. This one-room den was simply furnished with a fireplace, desk, and couch.
