It was here on Alexander Street that the residence of former slave, writer, and abolitionist Frederick Douglass once stood. From 1848-1851 Douglass lived there with his wife Anna and their five children. The Douglass home was additionally a stop on the Underground Railroad that provided safety for enslaved people seeking freedom.
