Frederick Douglass' House

We went to the home of Frederick Douglass and explored the grounds on which he lived. He had lived in that location for over 20 years and it was interesting to see how he lived in that time period.

Also while at the home it provided good views of Washington D.C. The site was located on a large hill, so we could see the Washington Monument, the Pentagon, and the Capital Building. It was really interesting to see all of the sites of the city from one place.

According to our tour guide, this was one of the only areas of the city in which one could get such a view. Many pictures were taken of the city and as we wrapped up viewing the house and the surrounding city we headed on to our next stop.
