Frederick Douglass White Oak
Camp Melton Historic Preserve
Frederick Douglass was one of the foremost leaders of the abolitionist movement during the years prior to the Civil War. Douglass lived and worked in Rochester, NY for most of his public career. After the close of the Civil War he moved to Washington, DC to carry on his work on behalf of African Americans. In 1877 he purchased the home which he named Cedar Hill, the location of the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site. This tree grew from a seed taken from the Frederick Douglass White Oak found at Cedar Hill.
