Over the last three years, the National Park Service has been restoring the 150 year old Frederick Douglass Historic Site. On February 14, 2007 at 10:00 a.m., in honor of Frederick Douglass' 189th birthday, the historic home will reopen to the public. Douglass freed himself from slavery and helped to free millions of others. Visit this important historic site in Washington, DC and learn about his lifetime of accomplishments.

Frederick Douglas would have been well know to James G. Birney, who was one of the early Bay City pioneers. Birney was an abolitionist writer and candidate for President from the Liberty Party in 1840 and 1844.
