Description

Guided Tour of Frederick Douglass Museum and Cultural Center

The Frederick Douglass Museum and Cultural Center, housed in "Twin Oaks", the summer cottage built in 1895 for Frederick Douglass, was purchased and restored in the early 1980's.

Frederick Douglass spent his life fighting for justice and equality. Born into slavery in 1818, he escaped as a young man and became a leading voice in the abolitionist movement. People everywhere still find inspiration today in his tireless struggle, brilliant words, and inclusive vision of humanity. Douglass's legacy is preserved here at Cedar Hill, where he lived his last 17 years.

Maryland's First African American Incorporated Town

Highland Beach in Maryland is one the nation's oldes major resort communities for African Americans. It was founded in 1893 by Major Charles Douglass and his wife Laura along the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay. Charles Douglass was the youngest son of aboltionist Frederick Douglass. Charles Douglass was the first to enlist in the miltary in New York during the Civil War. After Charles Douglass's death in 1920, his son Haley led efforts to incorporate Highland Beach as an African American municipality.
