Frederick Douglass' Home Still Looks Much Like it Did in 1905

Although it's exciting to see how the city and its street corners have changed over time, sometimes it's just nice to know that a building has been standing unchanged for well over 100 years. Current photos of Cedar Hill show it with fresher paint jobs, but then again, the former home of famed abolitionist Frederick Douglass is now a historic site that's run by the National Park Service. Douglass had bought the house in 1877 and added seven rooms to the already large abode with the decorative overhang and bay window. The view from the top of the home is also arguably one of the best in the city.
