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.
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.
