Frederick Douglass Historic Marker in St. Michaels, Maryland

Off of North Talbot Street in the quaint commercial thoroughfare of St. Michaels, Maryland is a small park with a historic marker honoring Frederick Douglass, Talbot County’s Native Son.

The outlay of the streets today is the same that a young enslaved Douglass and a sagacious United Marshal Douglass walked in the 19th century. The Talbot County Historical Society has developed a self-guided walking / driving tour of fourteen sites related to Douglass’ life in the county.
