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 - Run up and down the hill, take in the sweeping view of downtown Washington (we think it's 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, look at exhibits, watch Fighter for Freedom (a seventeen-minute movie about Douglass's life), or visit the bookstore.
