Two hundred years have passed since his birth, but the legacy of Frederick Douglass can still be seen across the Washington, D.C. area.
This weekend, the National Park Service will kick off a year-long celebration at Cedar Hill, Douglass' Anacostia home. Cedar Hill was Douglass' home for the last 17 years of his life and offers a glimpse into another side of Douglass.
"This is the older Douglass," Vince Vaise, the chief of visitor services for the National Park Service, said. "A reflective Douglass, but still a very active Douglass."
The Frederick Douglass National Historic Site has the most Douglass artifacts in its collection. Here's a sneak peak at the famous abolitionist's home.
