Notice the tree. This will help you find the marker, which is located between two trees.
For whatever reason, this location was awarded a marker, while the location of Frederick Douglass' first home in Rochester, less than 1/4 mile north remains unmarked. If you're looking for it, head north on Alexander, it's the parking lot just northeast and across the street from the Medical Arts Building (enjoy a tasty beverage and snack at the Old Toad or Gusto in the MA Building).
