Things To Do

Tour the historic house - Tours enter the house at scheduled times. Make reservations in advance to guarantee a spot on the tour.

Investigate the grounds - Take in the sweeping view of downtown Washington (we think it's the best in town), look at the trees and garden, play on the hillside, or have a picnic.

Explore the visitor center - Pick up tickets for the house tour, look at exhibits, watch the 17-minute film Frederick Douglass: Fighter for Freedom, or visit the bookstore.
