Anacostia is loaded with historic gems and the Frederick Douglass house is no exception. Worth the trip over to Anacostia to see this historic home. And, it is built on top of a hill -- the view of the DC skyline is pretty phenomenal, too!

執筆編集講演政治家としての活動を通して奴隷制廃止を訴えたアフリカ系アメリカ人、1818年から1895年、「Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass,an American Slave」1845年はベストセラーとなり翻訳もされた。暴力による抗議活動には賛同しなかった。

An amazing place of history. I was disappointed to see that the National Park Service has not maintained this historic site.

Very informative are tour guide was and the views this house has which sits on top of a hill. Not to mention this is free to the public. Good history we drove all the way from Texas and this was on are list of places to see in DC.

This site is run by the national park services and is located in southeast DC. This is area is known as the 'hood. The house is located on a high point in the neighborhood and gives you a different vantage point of the city.

I've been coming here for years. It's one of my most favorite places in the world. You can feel the presence of greatness when you are there. Very well kept grounds and the tour is well explained. It's a nice place to go for a date, for a family outing, or just because.

Need an elevator! A new intro movie and better rest rooms. A wonderful place with nice Rangers though.

Didn't make it beyond the gift shop because of the tour schedule. To their credit, they offer visitors an opportunity to watch a 20-minute long video during the 2-1/2 hour wait between guided tours.

The tour guide knowledgeable and passionate about information given. I thought that individual may have been a family. How well she spoke of Fredrick Douglas.

The museum was wonderful and the four was very informative. There's free parking there and a nice gift shop. However, be aware of the fact that the neighborhood isn't very good and walking it can be unsafe. I recommend taking a cab or uber especially in the evening.

Very interesting tour about an amazing man. Tour requires the ability to climb stairs. I'd recommend not walking between the closest Metro Station and the site - it's not a safe looking corner of town.

Richard K

1/4/2017

Being off the main Metro routes diminishes tourist awareness of the estate of one of America's greatest 19th century men. But it is an easy and affordable Uber ride from Capitol Hill now to get to an uncrowded but important and illuminating site.

The view is spectacular. You can see DC, MD, VA in a panoramic view. The Park Service bring to life the History of this Landmark

I'm DC for the weekend to visit the new National African American Museum. I added Frederick Douglass' house this week when I read his last home was in DC. I'm glad I learned about it and took the tour. Cedar Hill is an impressive home by any standard or time period. It is even more impressive within the context of Mr. Douglass's life: born a slave, died a statesman who was respected around the world. I always say "America, we can do better." Frederick Douglass represents some of the better this country is capable of.

This was the highlight of our trip. My son enjoyed this knowledge of the park guides. I tell everyone about this historical site. It is a must visit!!

Frederick Douglass Home is beautifully furnished with his personal and family belongings. The Rangers do a great job

This house and grounds has many positive reviews, and I have little to add to those: it's a lovely house with knowledgable guides well worth your time. But regarding the many reviews that are concerned about the neighborbood, feel free to ignore them. I, an unaccompanied woman, walked the three-quarters of a mile or so from the metro to the park, and I never felt unsafe. It is not an economically thriving neighborhood, nor is it a white neighboorhood, but please do not be deterred from visiting Douglass's house (or the cute newish art galleries a few block to the north on Good Hope).

A tip: you can only get in the house on a guided tour, and there are only half a dozen or so tours a day, so be sure to check the schedule on the website to avoid having to sit around and wait for a tour. Booking ahead is probably necessary on weekends.

If you do not know much about Frederick Douglass then this would be the perfect place to visit. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the history and life of Frederick Douglass. The house was very well preserved and it was a very fascinating tour overall. To be able to witness how life was back then compared to now was really eye-opening and I'd definitely recommend this tour as part of anyone's first time visiting Washington DC.

Very historic home of an important African American gentleman who was influential in working to overcome the injustice of slavery.

The park staff member, John McCaskill who guided us, was thorough and spoke well about both big and small incidences and reflections about Frederick Douglass and his family that lived in the house. Amazing to stand where one of the greatest Americans lived. John spoke eloquently and knew Frederick Douglass life so well, he was an inspiration to both young, (a 3, 10 and 16 year old girls) who were actually included in his discussion about the family life of Frederick Douglass, and old alike. Excellent presentation.

You can't live in DC and NOT visit the Frederick Douglass House. It's part of our city and country's history and your visit will inspire you to fight for freedom and equality for all. Here's why you need to visit:

1) It's open every day except Christmas Day and offers five tours each day, 7 days a week. Signing up online in advance is recommended as each tour slot is capped at 10 people and costs $1.50 per ticket. Tour times each day are 9AM, 12:15PM, 1:15PM, 3PM, and 4PM led by a ranger (National Park Services runs the historic site). Tours last 30 minutes.

2) The location is great! It's in SE DC on a hill with a beautiful view of the city and its famous monuments. Even though you're in the middle of the city, you feel like you're escaping for an hour.

3) The staff are friendly and parking is free. Once you park, follow the signs to the visitors center where you will watch a movie about Douglass' life, see a few small exhibits, and shop in the site's store. Then you'll walk up the hill to the house. The only way to get in is on an official tour where you'll walk through the house learning about Douglass' life. After the tour, visit The Growlery in the back yard before walking down to your car.

4) Take the time to enjoy the nature, history, and find the sacred bench on the property. I won't spoil the fun, but if you find the bench, leave your name in the journal underneath.

This is a must do for all visitors to the city!

Grateful to the National Park Service for the opportunity to learn more about Frederick Douglas. Be sure to sign up ahead of time for tours as space is limited. Staff was extremely knowledgeable

The House was awesome. It has 10 bedrooms. It sits on a hill n it has a house in the back of the home for his servants.

Very historic site. The house has been around since 1800s. It still have original wash bowl cabinets and other fixtures. I Love history and Im an educator.

I liked the tour but our tour guide- last name is Hall was so rude! We have a big group and she kept commenting on that and when one of our members told her she needed her water due to for medical reasons, she was really rude and hesitant.

Tiffany V

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. There was a short movie that gave a bit of background on Frederick Douglass that they played before the tour of his home. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour entertaining as well as informative. There's a gift shop and parking at the welcome center. Be sure to call and reserve a spot on the tour ahead of your visit.

Bonita D

It was a great wonderful informative experience learned a lot about Frederick Douglass that I never knew I encourage anyone to visit the site but it's not handicap accessible so if you're in a wheelchair don't bother to go😁

Allie G

My honey and I had no conception of how close this place was to us, so we were so pleased when we made the trip across town to visit. The tour is absolutely worth your time and contribution. Everyone who works there is knowledgeable and kind as well.

I will say that there is a very steep climb to get to the house itself - stairs if you're feeling froggy and a winding path if you aren't. Bring good shoes! And a camera, because the views are absolutely breath taking.

An impressive site. It is out of the way, away from the main tourist attractions of DC, but a very important story for all Americans to know. The home is high on a bluff overlooking Washington, above the Anacostia neighborhood, across the river in South East DC. The concrete visitors center is dug out of the side of the hill. You start your tour here with quotes from his writings and a timeline of his life followed by a video of his life story. The house can only be seen by guided tours of 10 people so call ahead to make a reservation. The house is very large and decorated in the late 19th century style. Since the home stayed in the family it has many of the original family artifacts. The National Parks Service needs to make a new video and make sure their staff are more thoroughly trained on the story of Frederick Douglass's life. Definitely worth a visit. Makes me want to know more about this important man's life.

This was my favorite part of my vacation. The video I watched before hand was very informative and interesting. The ranger who gave the tour was very knowledgeable and also was able to answer all the questions I came up with even answered questions about how to become a ranger as a job. Overall if I visit again I will definitely be back.

Loved the guided tour. The gentleman who gave the tour really knew his stuff, and was interesting. The house and the items inside were quite impressive. The views of D.C. and Baltimore were amazing.

So inspiring!! Make sure you get there early enough!!! You watch a video in the welcome center first. Then the tour. It's free. Go do it.

I had such a great time. The staff was kind, helpful and very knowledgeable. I've always been inspired by Frederick Douglass, but learned so much during this visit. It is a must see. Be sure to get a ticket to tour the house in advance.

I highly recommend everyone to visit Frederick Douglas house. The tour was very informative and his house is still in its original condition!

Very cool and little known site in DC, run by the National Park Service. A great step back in time and an opportunity to learn about one of the great African American leaders of the time! A definite must see if you have some time in DC. Easily accessible by metro or a nice walk across the river from downtown!

Larry h

This National treasure is a must see if you are in the Washington DC area! The house is 50 feet above street level and the steep climb to the house may be challenging for some. For all physical or mobility concerns, I recommend contacting the Park Staff with your questions.

Andrea P

Enjoy seeing how people used to live and was able to get a deep insight thanks to the knowledgeable tour guide. Best of all its free! More people should take advantage of this historic treasure.

I was disappointed in the way the rangers worked with me and my students. I worked hard to get a plan that would make the visit go smoothly. The rangers ignored it. We ended up with too many people in the house at the same time. Also the tour did not seem focused on the interests of the group. Finally, the video in the visitors center is out dated and not reflective of the site. This is 200th anniversary of Douglass's birth. I am embarrassed that this is the best the Park Service can do.

Great tour! I'm from the area but with friends in town I was able to do something I've never done! I would suggest this tour. NOTE: this is hour friendly for those who have trouble walking or standing.

This tour was part of the African American city tour in Washington DC. The tour consists of a walking tour of Frederick Douglass' home which contains all of the original furniture and accessories. Absolutely remarkable! The tour guide was knowledgeable and the staff was very professional. Wonderful experience!!!

this is HIS HOUSE! how awesome. make sure you get a tour. one of the most influential members of civil rights, well before MLK. Frederick's journey from a slave, to advocating civil rights to Mr. Lincoln, how cool.

The house was well preserved. The tour guide was well-versed in Frederick Douglass' life. The visitor center plays a film about his life that is very informative. I recommend this tour to everyone who is interested in the history of this country.

Frederick Douglass’ house is well worth a visit. Be aware that there are many stairs involved in the tour as his house is two stories and is on a hill (there is a way up to the house without involving stairs). Many of the artifacts in the home belonged to Douglass and the home itself is beautiful. There is a lot of history here and it’s amazing to be in the house where Frederick Douglass lived while learning more about him and what he accomplished. I highly recommend visiting here.

Brenda V

Do make time and stop by and visit his home. We learned a lot. We came in and the only way to get in is through a group tour and book an online reservation. We didn't have a reservation, but the young woman informed us that some people don't show and we might be able to get in. So, in the meantime we watched a short film about his life and walked around the facility reading about his background. When time came we were lucky to get in and visit his home.

You must take this tour. This tour guide/historian did a wonderful job and I was able to hear stories about Douglas that I've never heard about. Well worth the time.

Frederick Douglass home was such a Fantastic visit. I took my children as sort of a mini field trip to tour the grounds. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and informative about the timeline of Douglass life when his incredible Family lived in the home and on the property. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing all the home had to offer, it was marvelous to have a window back into time in such an extraordinary way. I recommend all families near and far visit this national treasure!

I went when it was closed so no tour of the actual inside but I did find peace up on that hill. Great amazing view of SE DC it's kinda quiet up there as well. There's a cottage out back that's open 4 viewing

Great part of not only DC history but the history of our country. Up on a hill the views of downtown are amazing. Its definitely worth checking out.

A wonderful museum and a national treasure. The park rangers are incredibly knowledgeable and passionate. My favorite view of DC is from this house. Definitely worth a visit.

Amazingly preserved home of frederick Douglass, of which he lived for around 40 years. The home is accessible via a tour, our guide was a young woman who was very passionate and thoroughly knowledgeable about Douglass and his family. The rooms are preserved essentially as he left them, and gives a great insight into the historical figure. Located in the Anacostia neighborhood of D.C. on the Maryland side. Free parking.

This tour was amazing! The park rangers here are excellent!

I even learned a few things about my own family when the rangers discussed the differences between traveling trunks.

The rangers were excellent at really showing how significant Frederick Douglass is in American history.

This is a must see tour...plus the cost is only $1.50

Lovely historic site. Beautiful very well kept grounds. The tour guide was nice, had a great voice and super knowledgeable. The inside has some very insightful quotes from Mr. Douglas. Picture worthy in every way. I would recommend going and taking friends / family on a tour. The views from atop the hill are just breath taking.

Not a well known site in the D.C area, run by the National Park Service, thus no admission fees for the tour and parking is also for free.The majority of the artifacts in the house are authentic and are not replicas.Be aware that there are many stairs involved in the tour as his house is two stories and is located on a hill (there is a ramp up the hill). The guide was vary knowledgeable and provided many insight.If your an enthusiast about African american and salivary abolition history, you enjoy this place.
