about Frederick Douglass National Historic Site:
Cedar Hill, as the house is called, has been preserved to look very much as it did in Douglass' time. Note the portrait of Abraham Lincoln over the parlor mantle. The rebuilt "Growlery," a one-room structure where the abolitionist retreated to study, can also be seen.
A short film covers the highlights of Douglass' life, from slavery through his escape to the north to his astonishing array of achievements.
A well-stocked gift shop is on site as well.
