Record of Determination for the Temporary Closure of the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site -> December 2022

On a recent walk though Old Anacostia we saw this 8×11 laminated sheet affixed to the front gate on W Street SE and on the gate to the vehicle entrance on 14th Street SE. As we understand, this posting would indicate that the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site will be closed until December 2022.

This is the first we have heard and/or read notice of this pending closure.
