Visit Frederick Douglass House

In preparation for our April 7 discussion of Frederick Douglass autobiography, let's tour his house the day before. Depending on interest, maybe we can carpool there or else meet there. There is a tour at 12:15 and we have to be there a little before to pick up tickets. They recommend reserving tickets ahead of time (only $1.50) for the house tour or risk-takers can get them there. If they happen to run out, the Visitor's Center is free. The tour is a half-hour. I'll check in with all who RSVPs "yes" about the details and logistics. Here's the website:

    I had previously visited the house, but it was absolutely worth going back. The views of Washington DC on a beautiful spring day were great, the tour was informative, and I left with a greater appreciation not only of Douglass, but of his second wife who fought to preserve the house for generations to come. Plus, the gift shop was selling The Columbian Orator, the book which helped Douglass become such a great writer and speaker. Now I'll have a glimpse into his inspiration.

    I had no idea this tour was so popular and that your needed to reserve tickets. I checked early this morning and they were all gone. So I am going to pass and you guys can tell me all about it tomorrow at the book discussion. Al

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
