Frederick Douglass house, 271 Hamilton St. (at Bond St.)

Close view of the Frederick Douglass house, looking east-southeast. Douglass owned this house from 1855 until his death, but because he deeded the property to his married daughter, it ceased to be recorded in his name. The property's link to Douglass was not formally recognized until 2010.
