Ffinally after 56 yearsI was able to tour the Frederick Douglass house. Up until I was five years old, my grandparents lived across the street from the Frederick Douglass house. I asked my grandparents about the big house on the hill that overlooked the street, and they said the man who built it and owned it was dead. I learned about Frederick Douglass later and was in awe of his accomplishments. The house has been wonderfully restored with a beautiful interior. There is a short film shown in the visitors center about Frederick Douglass's life. Be sure to make reservations prior to your visit to schedule a tour of the house, and allow enough time to walk the grounds in daylight. The views of Washington DC are astounding. Our Park Service guide was excellent.
