Frederick Douglass National Historic Site:
Operated by the National Park Service, the historic site features the preserved home and estate of Frederick Douglass in Southeast Washington, DC. Along with the home, the National Park maintains a visitor center and the “Growlery” where Douglass did much of his writing and studying. Advance tickets to tour the house are strongly recommended for individuals and mandatory for groups. The Frederick Douglass house contains many of his personal effects that give a glimpse into his life. Although the site is not far from the Anacostia metro station, the National Park often advises visitors to drive or cab to the grounds due to Southeast’s crime rate.
