Frederick Douglass National Historic Site wayfinding sign #1 _ 16th & W Streets SE

Throughout the old streets of Historic Anacostia are wayfinding signs for the former home of Frederick Douglass, now the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site at 1411 W Street SE (formerly Jefferson Street).

The sign at 16th & W Street SE is of particular interest because the Metropolitan Police Department monitors this corner with a crime camera. Many of the young people I’ve spoken with outside of the corner store allege up and down that the Frederick Douglass house is haunted.

More on this later…
