Things To Do

Tour the Frederick Douglass House- Remember to make your reservations ahead of time.

Investigate the grounds- Run up and down the hill, take in the sweeping view of downtown Washington (we think its the best in town), look at the trees, or have a picnic (just take that trash with you).

Explore the Visitor Center- Pick up Tickets, study exhibits, watch Fighter for Freedom (a seventeen minute movie about Douglass' life), or visit the book store.
