Frederick Douglass was a well-spoken abolitionist who in his early years was actually a slave before escaping to freedom. Throughout the remainder of his life he promoted the ideas of equality, not only based on ethnicity, but also for women.
The house serving as the base of the historic site was bought by Douglass in 1877, and served as his home until he died in 1895. He named the house Cedar Hill and it still affords visitors a grand view of Washington, D.C. today.
