Frederick Douglas National Historic Site (FRDO)

Kicking off 2018 park adventures, we start our journey to Frederick Douglas National Historic Site in Washington DC. We learned about Frederick Douglas’ legacy at his home on Cedar Hill. Douglas fought through his life for justice and equality.

“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.”

Touring his home was an incredible experience. The house was well kept with every turn telling a story. Loved the portraits of Douglas and Lincoln hanging in his library. Along with the many artifacts from his storied life, especially those from his time in Haiti. The views from the front of his home showed a breathe taking view of Washington DC not to be missed.

Quinn worked on her Junior Ranger booklet in the weeks prior and earned her 1st badge of 2018. The park rangers were awesome and did a great job leading the tour. We are happy to have this wonderful site so close to home and to be able to celebrate his bicentennial birthday in our own way. Check out several photos from our visit!
