The home of Frederick Douglass, famous 19th-century African American abolitionist and orator. After becoming Washington, DC's U. S. Marshall in 1877, Douglass moved from Capitol Hill to this 1859, Gothic Revival house. He lived in this neighborhood located East of the River until his death in 1895.

Cedar Hill, as this home is often called, is strikingly preserved from Douglass's time. While living here, Douglass lectured widely and wrote his autobiography, Life and Times of Frederick Douglass, earning him the title of the "Sage of Anacostia."
