THIS MONTH IN HISTORY

Frederick Douglas Home Becomes A National Historic Site

In February of 1972, Frederick Douglas’ DC home, Cedar Hill is turned into a national Historic Site. In 1900, Helen Pitts Douglass, Frederick Douglas’ wife, urged congress to charter the Frederick Douglass Memorial and Historical Association (FDMHA). The FDMHA then began to partner up with different organizations to restore the Douglas home. In 1962, the home became part of the National Park Service. From 2004-2007, additional restorations were made, and the house reopened in February 2007. The month of February was big for the Douglas home!
